SYNIVERSAL PERFORMANCE & PRODUCTION manages the worldwide recital, concert, masterclass
and speaking appearances, as well as studio and live recordings and video production of Steven Larson.
STEVEN LARSON is one of the most versatile composer-pianist virtuosos of the 21st-century with an all-encompassing classical repertoire, and a prolific repertoire of original new age works comprising a bold fusion of classical, new age, and neoclassical styles, combining a bravura virtuoso's freedom with a free spirit of sensitivity and freedom.
In the tradition of the great pianistic improvisors such as Beethoven and Liszt, Steven Larson synthesizes these abilities in live improvisations, fueled by modern technology and audience participation in creating dynamic piano-driven cinematic-like scores ranging from 30 to 75 minutes in length.
Upon the release of Steven Larson's new album Journey to Elsewhere, Syniversal Production is currently remastering several albums, including Pianonymity and Prologue for release on the Syniversal Music Label.
Syniversal Production is working on a new series of meditational albums called Sounds of the Syniverse.
