Steven Spooner in the Kansas Public Radio Live Performance Studio

“Spooner is a pianist in the tradition that many believe died with the likes of Horowitz, Arrau, Bolet, Cziffra, and Wild. His talent, to my ears, is easily the equal of most major pianists of today and far superior to a large number of those “most exciting and dynamic pianists of their generation” whose discs fill the new record catalogs to overflowing.” (FANFARE MAGAZINE) Steven has gained a global reputation as a pianist of inimitable gifts and innovative programing.
