Quickly establishing himself as one of the leading early/new music performers of his generation, Steuart performs regularly as a soloist and chamber musician in leading venues and festivals across North America and Europe.

Steuart enjoys an active career designing creative programs and being involved in innovative collaborations with leading ensembles and performers.

 

Highlights of his 2014 concert season included being a featured soloist with Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop (DE), radio and festival appearances with Ensemble Ausonia (BE), performing with Holland Baroque Society (NL) for King Willem Alexander of The Netherlands, appearing as soloist at the Amsterdam Cello Bienalle, and  launching the first season of Oerknal! (a contemporary music collective which Steuart co-founded). His concert 'Bach&Beer' was selected by the Cleveland Plain Dealer as one of the 'Top 10 Classical Events of 2014' (USA) and a concert in which he appeared as soloist with Rene Schiffer and Apollo's Fire was numbered in London's '5 Best Classical Music Moments of 2014' according to The Telegraph (UK).

 

Since 2009, Steuart has been a member of the cello and chamber music faculty at the Credo Chamber Music Festival in Ohio and in 2014 he joined the faculty of the Crescendo Summer Institute in Tokaj, Hungary where he co-directs the baroque department.

In addition to summer teaching, he has presented master classes and held residencies at various American institutions; most recently, a week long residency at the Wheaton Conservatory of Music (IL).

 

Steuart holds a BM in modern cello and a MM in viola da gamba and baroque cello from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music. He can be heard on such labels as Centaur, Avie, Channel Classics, and various independent releases available online. Steuart plays a beautiful mid-18th century German cello and a not-so-special mid-20th century German viola da gamba. He and his wife Michelle reside in The Hague, The Netherlands.
