Picture of CD of music for viola and piano by Hindemith, Brahms and Mozart, performed by Shmuel Katz and Dmitri Shteinberg
Praised as "world-class musicians" by the leading German newspaper Frankfurter Rundschau, and heralded by the Ottawa Citizen for their "uncommonly rich and introspective playing", violist Shmuel Katz and pianist Dmitri Shteinberg have continued to garner critical acclaim since they founded the Katz-Shteinberg Duo in 1999 in New York City.

Shmuel Katz is a frequent guest violist and violinist with the New York Philharmonic. Dmitri Shteinberg has made frequent appearances as guest soloist with international orchestras, worldwide.

The Duo's debut CD includes the Hindemith Viola Sonata, Bach Sonata for Viola and Piano, transcribed from the original work for viola da gamba and harpsichord and Mozart Violin Sonata in Bflat major, K.378.

Two very fine New York-based musicians. Shmuel Katz is a refreshingly facile violist. I compared his performance of Hindemith's Viola Sonata 3 with the composer's own. Katz's intonation is far more secure, his tone production smoother, and his vibrato much more consistent. Katz and Shteinberg are able to play with a far greater dynamic range. Dmitri Shteinberg is able to accompany a viola without drowning it out or losing his own personality, which is better than Jesus Maria Sanroma was able to do in his recording with the composer. It has the requisite breadth and power.
