Project Description

Shai Wosner – piano

Pianist Shai Wosner has attracted international recognition for his exceptional artistry, musical integrity and creative insight. His performances of a broad repertoire, from Beethoven to contemporary works, reflect a degree of virtuosity and intellectual curiosity that has made him a favourite among audiences and critics, who note his ‘keen musical mind and deep musical soul’ (NPR All things Considered). His imaginative programming is on display in his latest solo album, released by Onyx Classics and featuring an eclectic mix of improvisationally inspired works by composers spanning centuries, most prominently Schubert. With this recording and the recent launch of a new solo recital series, Schubert; the Great Sonatas at the Jerusalem Music Centre, he builds on a deep, career-long engagement with the music of Schubert, of which he is known as a leading interpreter.
