Stephan Lindeman is Professor of Music at Brigham Young University, where he teaches theory, jazz studies, and piano. His research interests include Felix Mendelssohn, the piano concerto genre, and jazz. He is the author of a book on changes to the form of the piano concerto in the early nineteenth century, and articles on Mendelssohn (whose autographs he studied at the Deutsche Staatsbiliothek zu Berlin while resident at the American Academy), and other composer/pianists, in The Musical Quarterly, The New Grove/Oxford Dictionary of Music, The Cambridge Mendelssohn Companion (2004), The Cambridge Companion to the Concerto (2006), and a chapter on Jan Ladislav Dussek’s piano concertos for a forthcoming monograph on that composer (2011). While resident at the American Academy in Berlin, Lindeman also began to concentrate more on jazz composition (including such titles as “S1 nach Wannsee,” and “Hohenzollern”). He was a member of the BMI Jazz Composers Workshop from 2008-2011 and has had a number of compositions for jazz big band, and smaller ensembles, performed and recorded.
