“With his communicative style of playing and effusive enthusiasm” (James Anagnoson, Glenn Gould School), American pianist Jason Stoll effectively combines fortuitous virtuosity, striking stage presence, and excellent taste in programming to instill inspiration and imagination among his listeners. A proponent of new music, Jason frequently programs music by current composers to great acclaim. Highlights include giving the U.S. premiere of Benjamin Britten’s Rondo Concertante for piano and strings, a number of solo recitals throughout his native California, New York, Toronto, Dublin, and orchestral appearances with the North Charleston Pops, Midland-Odessa Symphony, Victoria Symphony, Miami Music Festival Orchestra, the Westlake Village Symphony, the Antelope Valley Symphony, the York Symphony Orchestra, and the Tehachapi Symphony Orchestra.
"Jason is a wonderful pianist - his communicative style of playing and effusive enthusiasm for music is what is needed in the arts today." James Anagnoson, Dean The Glenn Gould School
