In this series, which is presented in New York and Berlin, esteemed pianist András Schiff  promotes outstanding young pianists and showcases them as well as developing exciting programs with each artist. For the second concert in the series, the world-renowned virtuoso has personally Roman Rabinovich and has invited him to present a one-hour solo concert.

An artist with total technical command, a prodigious memory and a colorful personality at the piano, the Israeli pianist Roman Rabinovich was the first prize winner of the Arthur Rubinstein Competition in 2008. At age 10 he made his Israel Philharmonic Orchestra debut under the baton of Zubin Mehta, and has since performed throughout the United States, Europe and Israel in such prestigious venues as Leipzig’s Gewandhaus, Wigmore Hall, Lucerne and Davos Fesivals in Switzerland, Carnegie’s Zankel Hall, the Metropolitan and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museums, the Great Hall of Moscow Conservatory and Glazunov Hall in St. Petersburg. Early last year he released to critical acclaim his first CD, Ballets Russes—piano transcriptions of ballet scores. Mr. Rabinovich is also a gifted visual artist.

The Meitar Ensemble, praised by the New York Times for their “excellence, poise and precision,” will perform a night of masterworks by Gérard Grisey and Hanns Eisler, plus new pieces by composers of today from Israel and the US.

The ensemble, founded in 2004 in Tel Aviv by artistic director Amit Dolberg, has established itself as a prominent array of virtuosos specializing in contemporary music. They have been acclaimed for their significant contribution to the development of Israeli culture and music, receiving the Binyaminy Award (2006), Partosh Award (2008), and the Landau Award (2010). Over the past ten years they have commissioned and premiered more than 200 new works around the world, and they are currently ensemble-in-residence at the Israeli Conservatory of Music in Tel Aviv.

Additionally, the ensemble has initiated a unique educational youth program, the Tedarim Project, offering young musicians in all fields (performance, conducting and composing) an opportunity to learn, explore and perform new music at the highest level. This educational program includes a series of master courses for young professional composers and conductors, called Contemporary Encounters, with musical figures such as Ivan Fedele, Philippe Leroux, Fabian Panisello, Pierre-Andre Valade and Michel Tabachnik.

Legendary pianist Leon Fleisher represents the gold standard of musicianship and, at 85 years young, he continues to impart his life-affirming artistry throughout the world, thriving in a sustained career as conductor and soloist, recitalist, chamber music artist, and master class mentor.

For the third in a series of three conversations, rescheduled from last month he sits down with his son Julian Fleisher to discuss Schubert’s special place in his world, exploring the master’s life and career through the lens of the music he loves.

Leon Fleisher’s recordings of solo piano music, chamber music, and concertos are considered as a standard reference for aspiring pianists, and in 2008, he was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.  His latest CD, All the Things You Are, has been nominated for a Grammy Award this year.

The Art of the Guitar series continues this season at 92Y with four established American composer-guitarists who bring their unique voices and share their dual roles. With Emmy & Grammy Awards, best-selling CDs, and top prizes in international guitar competitions, each of these artists truly represent what it means to be the total musician.

The tradition of the composer–performer goes back to the Renaissance and beyond. In our times, this tradition has been particularly successful among guitarists. Benjamin Verdery, artistic director of 92Y’s Art of the Guitar series and chair of Yale’s guitar department, will give a pre-concert talk keeping this duality in mind.
