In August 2016, Tenor Michael Steinberger was featured as soloist on the Clarion Choir’s new recording Passion Week (Maximilian Steinberg), and in October joined the choir for their tour to Moscow, St. Petersburg and London to give the Russian and British premieres. It has gone on to be nominated for Best Choral Performance at this year’s Grammy awards. Other recent recording credits include Four Quarters of Jerusalem, a recording by the Cathedral Choir of St. John the Divine under the direction of Kent Tritle (2015), Requiem for the Innocent (Contemporary Choral Works, Vol. 1) with the NY Virtuoso Singers, Bobby McFerrin’s VOCAbuLarieS, which received three Grammy nominations in 2011, and Pomerium’s Music for the Tudor Queens (2015). Mr. Steinberger and Pomerium just completed work on their next recording, Musical Games, Puzzles, and Riddles of the Renaissance in February, and features Michael in several quartets and trios in addition to the full ensemble pieces. Well known to New York area audiences, Mr. Steinberger’s appearances run the gamut from preeminent early music ensembles like The Waverly Consort, New York Collegium, Artek and Pomerium to features in modern masterpieces like Arvo Pärt’s haunting Stabat Mater with Musica Sacra (a work he reprised at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine on Good Friday) and Kurt Weill’s The Seven Deadly Sins with Audra McDonald and the New York Philharmonic. Other collaborations of note include Voices of Ascension, Hudson Shad, Anonymous 4, Lionheart, Amor Artis, Toby Twining Music, and The Western Wind Vocal Ensemble.
