Fanfare Magazine Review of Pianist Steven Masi

Jerry Dubins  March 14, 2014

“I don’t know what life Steven Masi was living when this materialization of Beethoven’s A-Major Sonata came into being because I wasn’t there for any of his previous existences, but the one he experienced for this performance must have been of transcendent grace and glory, for it’s a performance of both bliss and ecstasy.”

Masi strikes me as an artist that combines an innate musical instinct with an intellectual discipline in a perfect balance in which neither dominates, but in which both work together as a single, unified entity.
