His solo performances include the Jerusalem Symphony, The Italian Filarmonica Marchigiana, Israel Chamber Orchestra, Israel Camerata Orchestra and Porto National Symphony under the batons of Massimo Pradella, Roger Nierenberg, Florin Totan and David Shallon, among others.

Besides solo and chamber music performances, Shteinberg frequently appears with concert-lectures; he also plays harpsichord and period pianos. His interest in new music has led to world premieres and numerous commissions.

In the United States, he won the Naomi Foundation Competition and the Artists International Debut Award, and received the Salon De Virtuosi Fellowship Grant.
