Pianist Steve Larson, also known as STYVYN, has appeared on five continents as soloist and collaborative artist, from London’s Wigmore Hall to the Melbourne, Australia International Festival and from Bilbao’s Teatro Arriaga to Dimitris Mitropoulos Hall in Athens, Greece. His wide repertoire focuses on the sonatas of Mozart, Haydn and Clementi, the 32 Sonatas and 5 Concertos of Beethoven, the Well-Tempered Clavier and Goldberg Variations of Bach, the B-Minor Sonata, Scherzo and March, and other major works of Liszt. His most recent classical album, Prologue, released on the Classical Masterworks label, consists of a 'dizzying array of virtuosic pieces for the piano' by Bach, Brahms, Debussy, Moszkowski, Granados, Liszt, and Rachmaninoff.
As author and pedagogue, he is the creator of Piano Plasticity, The Revolutionary Path to Pianistic Mastery, an innovative concept designed as a comprehensive piano method drawing on his extensive knowledge of the history of piano technique and his studies into music and neuroplasticity. The iPad version of Piano Plasticity is due to be released in the Fall of 2015.
His original non-classical compositions, released under the artistic name, STYVYN, span a vast range of styles, from experimental, pop, and new age.
