Soheil Nasseri

Soheil Nasseri is an American pianist based in Berlin.[1]


Born to Persian parents in Santa Monica, California, Soheil Nasseri began studying the piano at the age of five and at the age of twenty moved to New York to study with Karl Ulrich Schnabel (1909–2001). Following the death of Schnabel, Nasseri became a protégé of Jerome Lowenthal and Claude Frank. Other significant teachers include Irina Edelman, Anna Balakerskaia, Clinton Adams, Eva Pierrou, and Ann Schein.


Nasseri has performed at Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, and Berliner Philharmonie, among other venues.

He has premiered over 2 dozen works by contemporary composers since 2001.[2] Also notably, he performed the world premiere of Kaikhosru Shapurji Sorabji's Sonata No. 0 (1917) at Carnegie Hall in 2002, and made the first commercial recording thereof.[3][4] In the past seven years, he has performed thirty of Beethoven's thirty-two piano sonatas at various major venues to fulfill his pledge to perform all of Beethoven's piano works (including chamber music and lieder) before his 250th birthday in 2020.
