“Since my earliest days as a pianist, I've recognized that the Steinway piano is the finest in the world- responsive, brilliant, expressive, reliable, and viscerally thrilling to play and hear.”

Scott Dunn

American conductor and pianist Scott Dunn – one of the most versatile and capable musicians of his generation – has appeared with the BBC, Los Angeles, St. Petersburg and Royal Philharmonics; the Vienna Radio (RSO) and BBC Concert Orchestras; the Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Seattle, Sydney and Vancouver Symphonies; the Cleveland Orchestra, the American Composers Orchestra, Orchestra of St. Luke’s; Orchestre National de Lyon; and numerous other distinguished ensembles and headliners.

A noted interpreter of contemporary music and advocate for cross-over and film music, Dunn has given premières of numerous works by the world’s most distinguished composers and appeared throughout the United States and Europe as conductor, recitalist and collaborator. Since his momentous 1999 Carnegie Hall début playing his own orchestration of the ‘lost’ Vernon Duke Piano Concerto in C, Dunn has brought light to neglected works of composers ranging from Franco Alfano, Vernon Duke, and Duke Ellington to his mentors Sir Richard Rodney Bennett, Lukas Foss, Leonard Rosenman and others.

A pianist of great distinction, Dunn was a student of Byron Janis. Early in his career he served as touring pianist for the Martha Graham Dance Company and toured Eastern Europe and states of the former Soviet Union as an ‘Artistic Ambassador’ for the USIA playing the Ives Concord Sonata and other American 20th century masterpieces. Also an orchestrator of note, he has served as Associate Conductor of the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Hollywood Bowl Orchestra since 2007.
