Pianist and conductor Stephen Drury has performed throughout the world with a repertoire that stretches from Bach to Liszt to the music of today. Drury's performances of music written in the last hundred years, ranging from the piano sonatas of Charles Ives to the works by Gyorgy Ligeti, Frederic Rzewski and John Cage, have received the highest critical acclaim. Steven Drury has appeared at Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London, the Cite de la Musique in Paris and the Leipzig Gewandhaus. A champion of contemporary music, he has taken the sound of dissonance into remote corners of Pakistan, Greenland and Seoul. Drury teaches at the New England Conservatory, where he has directed festivals of the music of John Cage, Steve Reich and Christian Wolff.
