Juliana Steinbach – Piano
Juliana Steinbach began her piano studies in France, having left Brazil when she was only three years old. Following her first years at Lyon Conservatory (CNR), she became a private student of Greek-American pianist Christine Paraschos. After earning a Litterature Baccalaureate, she studied at Paris Conservatory (CNSM), where she graduated with First Prize in piano (2000) and chamber music (2003). In 2002 she was admitted by unanimity into the post-graduate program (Troisième Cycle) as a student of Jacques Rouvier. At this occasion, the Alfred Reinhold Foundation awarded her a Blüthner grand piano. Following her studies in France, she worked regularly with Franco Scala at the Accademia Internazionale del Pianoforte ‘Incontri col Maestro’ in Imola (Italy), with Maria João Pires at her home in Belgais (Portugal), and Pnina Salzman in Tel-Aviv (Israel), besides attending master classes with musicians such as Dmitri Bashkirov, Christoph Eschenbach, Emanuel Krasovsky and Alicia de Larrocha. In May 2007 she graduated from The Juilliard School in New York, where she had been a piano student of Joseph Kalichstein, also receiving regular chamber music coaching from clarinettist Charles Neidich and the members of the Juilliard String Quartet. She currently resides in Paris.
