A regular soloist with many of the world’s foremost orchestras and conductors, the Israeli pianist recently completed his third and final season as the inaugural Artist-in-Association of the New York Philharmonic. After his recent debuts with the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, Hong Kong Philharmonic, and Chicago, Baltimore, and Seattle Symphonies, he opened the season with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl, and made recent debuts with both the London and Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestras.
