Delores Stevens, piano
A pianist whose professional career has shined with many facets, Delores Stevens achieved early success by winning the coveted Coleman Chamber Music Competition in Pasadena California and recently she received the “Living Legacy Award” from the Young Musician’s Foundation in ceremonies at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles. As a member of the acclaimed Montagnana Trio, she gave more than 500 concerts throughout Europe and North America. Delores Stevens has received many accolades for her inspired performances of contemporary music. For example, a Los Angeles Times music critic described her collaboration with violinist Paul Zukovsky as “…the definitive performance.” And Newsweek’s Alan Rich wrote, “She tamed (this) energetic, unruly, immensely challenging music with splendid technique… All of her program demonstrated her special mastery.” At home on the international concert stage, Delores Stevens toured Japan twice in the 90’s; one of which was under the auspices of the US State Department and recently she has performed in Australia and South America. She has recorded for 16 different record labels in all genres of music from Hindemith to Mozart, and her solo piano CD recording Pilgrimage is available on the Dominguez Digital label. Always a tireless champion of new music, she has commissioned and premiered works by more than two dozen composers and has been winner of the prestigious Performer Award from the National Association of Composers. In addition, in 1988 she was awarded a 6-year Touring Solo Artist Grant from the California Arts Council. Delores Stevens has served six terms as governor and trustee of the “Grammy” sponsor Recording Academy in Los Angeles and has been Director of the Chamber Music Program for the Young Musician’s Foundation for the last two decades. (She has served MVCMS as Artistic Director since its inception 45 years ago)
