Robert Shannon

Robert Shannon


Pianist Robert Shannon has presented solo recitals, ensemble concerts, and master classes throughout the United States, Europe, South America, and Asia. In recent seasons he has appeared in Beijing, London, Paris, Glasgow, Rome, Stuttgart, New York, San Francisco, Columbia (South America) and Taiwan. His repertoire ranges from Bach to Adams, and he has been especially noted for his recordings of Ives' complete works for violin and piano, and works by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer George Crumb, available on Bridge Records.

 

He is Professor of Piano at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, Director of the Division of Keyboard Studies, and Director and Founder of the Cooper Competition at Oberlin, which in cooperation with the Cleveland Orchestra has become one of the most important youth competitions in the world.

 

Mr. Shannon earned a bachelor of music degree in piano performance at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music and a bachelor of arts degree in music from Oberlin's College of Arts and Sciences, although his original intention was to major in East Asian studies. He earned a master's degree in piano performance at the Juilliard School. He has studied with Jack Radunsky, Ania Dorfmann, Dorothy Taubmann, and Vladimir Ashkenazy. He often performs duo recital with his wife, Oberlin faculty colleague, Haewon Song.
