Stephen Gosling 

 

Pianist Stephen Gosling is a ubiquitous presence on the New York new music scene, and has also performed throughout the US, Europe, Latin America and Asia. His playing has been hailed as ‘brilliant,’ ‘electric,’ ‘luminous and poised’ (New York Times), possessing ‘utter clarity and conviction’ (Washington Post), and ‘extraordinary virtuosity’ (Houston Chronicle). 
A native of Sheffield, England, Gosling relocated to New York in 1989 to begin studies with Oxana Yablonskaya at the Juilliard School. Upon graduation from the Bachelor of Music programme in 1993, he was awarded the Mennin Prize for Outstanding Leadership and Excellence in Music. Earlier that year he performed Corigliano’s Piano Concerto with Leonard Slatkin and the Juilliard Orchestra at Avery Fisher Hall, and gave the European premiére of Paul Schoenfield’s Four Parables with the Dutch Radio Philharmonic under Lukas Foss.

In 1994 Gosling received his Master’s degree from Juilliard and was awarded the Sony Elevated Standards Fellowship. He subsequently enrolled in the Doctor of Musical Arts programme, from which he graduated in 2000. 

Stephen Gosling was for three years pianist of the Aspen Contemporary Ensemble, and appeared in several seasons of the ‘Summergarden’ series at MOMA. He is a member of both Ensemble Sospeso and the New York New Music Ensemble, and has performed with Orpheus, the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Centre, Speculum Musicae, the DaCapo Chamber Players, the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, Continuum, the League of Composers / ISCM Chamber Players, and Da Camera of Houston. He has also participated in off-Broadway productions and collaborated with a number of dance companies, including the American Ballet Theatre and the Parsons Dance Project.
