Jason Stoll

“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. During the 2019-2020 season, Jason will premiere a concerto based on video game themes by Los Angeles based composer Michael Glenn Williams.

Past concert highlights include 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 Miami Music Festival Orchestra, the Westlake Village Symphony, the Antelope Valley Symphony, the California State University, Northridge Symphony, the York Symphony Orchestra, and the Tehachapi Symphony Orchestra. Mr. Stoll has also competed internationally and was named a Semi-finalist in the 2015 Dublin International Piano Competition and Finalist in the 2013 American Paderewski Piano Competition. 

In addition to a busy schedule of performing as a solo artist, Mr. Stoll is also a lover of chamber music. For the past two years, he has been a member of ACE Trio which features  Ryan Glass on clarinet and Shannon Canchola on flute. With this unique instrumentation, they have performed a varied and unique repertoire in a multitude of recital series throughout California. They were coined, “Musical Tour de force”, by the Mountaineer Progress Newspaper. 

A versatile performer, Mr. Stoll has also performed with the genre bending trio, Take 3, performing an eclectic mix of music including the Beatles, Game of Thrones, Pirates of the Caribbean, current pop hits and mashups.

 

Over the years, Mr. Stoll has had the privilege of participating in masterclasses working closely with many distinguished artists including Leon Fleisher, Emmanuel Ax, Stephen Hough, and Manahem Pressler. As a teacher himself, Mr. Stoll has served on the faculty of the Bronx Conservatory of Music for three years teaching private piano lessons.

Mr. Stoll holds degrees from California State University, Northridge, the Juilliard School, and the Glenn Gould School of the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto. His principal teachers included John Perry, David Louie, Jerome Lowenthal, Matti Raekallio, Dmitry Rachmanov, and John Roscigno. Additionally, Mr. Stoll has attended several prestigious summer music festivals including the Miami Music Festival, Pianofest in the Hamptons, Aspen Music Festival, and the Adamant Music School. 

Currently, Mr. Stoll is a piano instructor and lecturer at California State University, Northridge, and is also a freelance pianist, masterclass presenter and adjudicator throughout the Los Angeles area. Apart from pianistic activites, Mr. Stoll is a fan of the NBA, professional tennis, juggling, bowling, and ping-pong.
