Steven Vanhauwaert


Hailed by the Los Angeles Times for his ‘impressive clarity, sense of structure and monster technique’, Steven Vanhauwaert has garnered a wide array of accolades, amongst them the Maurice Lefranc award, the Rotary Prize, the Galiot Prize, the USC Concerto Competition, and the Grand Prize at the Los Angeles International Liszt Competition.
Steven Vanhauwaert has appeared in the world’s leading venues such as the Concertgebouw in Bruges, Segerstrom Hall in Costa Mesa, Bovard Auditorium in Los Angeles, the Singel in Antwerp, the Great Hall of the Brussels Conservatory, the Great Hall of the Budapest Liszt Conservatory, as well as numerous other prestigious venues in Bulgaria, Hungary, the US, the Netherlands, France, Canada, Israel, the UK, Austria, and Spain. He frequently tours China with solo appearances at the renowned National Center for the Performing Arts in Beijing and the Shanghai Oriental Arts Center. He has appeared with orchestras such as the Pacific Symphony, the Flemish Symphony, the Oak Ridge Symphony, the USC Symphony, the Bryan Symphony, Collegium Instrumentale, the Concord Jazz Ensemble, the Auburn Symphony, the Eastern Sierra Chamber Orchestra, the Peninsula Symphony, and Prima la Musica, amongst others.
An avid champion of lesser-known repertoire, Steven Vanhauwaert gave the West Coast premiere of Messiaen’s Fantaisie for violin and piano at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, and the US premiere of Eric Tanguy’s Piano Trio, as well as works by Scharwenka and Walter Arlen. This season he will make his solo debut for the prestigious PianoSpheres at Walt Disney Hall’s REDCAT with a program focused on piano etudes by a selection of today’s leading composers, including special commissions by Eric Tanguy and Veronika Krausas. He will also return to the Concertgebouw in Bruges as part of the “Rumoer” happening which focuses on fascination and fear of noise. The recital features works by Busoni, Casella, Pratella, Ornstein and Lourié.
His debut album with works by Schumann, Schubert, Liszt, Chopin, and Debussy was well received in the press. Additional recordings include Paris 1913 and Petrushka, with his piano duo 4handsLA, featuring works by Stravinsky, Casella, Satie, Poulenc, and Ravel. More recently a disc with works by Lior Rosner was released on Bridge Records. Upcoming releases include a solo Busoni album.
Many of Steven Vanhauwaert’s performances have been broadcast live on European and American networks such as K-MZT, K-CSN, K-USC, K-PFK, W-HKB, W-UOT, K-UAT, W-FMT, RTBF, WTV, PBS, and KLARA.
