Hailed by The Washington Post as an artist of “formidable virtuosity and stylistic sensitivity,” Israeli pianist Tomer Gewirtzman has impressed audiences around the world.  He performed recitals in London in Steinway Hall and in Paris in the Salle Cortot of the École Normale.  Mr. Gewirtzman played with Nikolai Petrov’s Kremlin Festival in cities throughout Russia and has appeared as soloist with orchestras throughout Israel including the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, Israel Symphony Orchestra, Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra, the Israeli Chamber Orchestra, the New Haifa Symphony Orchestra, and the Buchmann-Mehta School of Music Symphony Orchestra.  In the U.S., he has appeared as soloist with Symphony Silicon Valley, the Aspen Concert Orchestra, the Shreveport Symphony Orchestra, the North-West Florida Symphony Orchestra, and the South Arkansas Symphony Orchestra.

At the 2015 Young Concert Artists International Auditions, he was awarded First Prize as well as five concert prizes: the Buffalo Music Society Prize, the Harriman-Jewell Series Prize, the Sunday Musicale Prize, the Usedom Music Festival Prize, and the Vancouver Recital Society Prize.  Next season, he makes his debut in the Young Concert Artists Series in Washington, DC, co-presented by Washington Performing Arts, and in New York.
