Steven Schoenberg’s kaleidoscopic piano speaks with a uniquely American voice. His flowing compositions, laced with stride, folk, modern jazz, and impressionistic styles,
burst open into full-scale musical dioramas.
~ Tom Regan, Prairie Public Radio
Schoenberg’s Three Days in May (Quabbin Records) is worth the effort. It’s an eloquent, lush, and flowing series of improvisations that are spliced together to form sequential states of mind. He claims that the performances are completely spontaneous, and if that’s so, they are within strict melodic and rhythmic frameworks.
Schoenberg performs spontaneously improvised works
and yet each one has the polish, sophistication, and
technical mastery of a complex piece of music.
