Stephen Prutsman (b1960)

Pianist, composer and arranger Stephen Prutsman, (in some places known as Steve Brotzman), is considered to be one of the most versatile and innovative musicians of his generation, moving easily from classical to jazz to world music styles in his quest to explore and seek common ground in the music of all cultures and languages.

Born in Los Angeles in 1960, Stephen first began playing the piano by ear before moving on to more formal music studies. In his early teens he was the keyboard player for several art rock groups, including “Cerberus” and “Vysion” and enjoyed a moment of musical irony when he won television’s “Gong Show” as a pseudo honky-tonk pianiSt While in college, Stephen played jazz in various clubs and lounges throughout southern California by night, and by day worked as the music arranger and pianist for a nationally syndicated televangelist program.

In the early 90’s he was a medal winner at the Tchaikovsky and Queen Elisabeth piano competitions and the recipient of the Avery Fischer Career Grant, which established his career as a concert pianist and led to performances in various prestigious music centers and with leading orchestras in the U.S. and Europe. From 2004–2007, Stephen was an Artistic Partner with the St Paul Chamber Orchestra, where he acted as composer, arranger, program host and pianist conducting concerti from the keyboard.
