MICHAEL MIZRAHI : PIANO
Hailed for his “splendid powers of concentration” (The Washington Post) and performances that are “exciting to watch and hear” (The San Diego Union-Tribune), Michael Mizrahi has won acclaim for his compelling performances of a wide-ranging repertoire and his ability to connect with audiences of all ages. He has appeared as concerto soloist, recitalist, chamber musician, and music educator across the United States and in Europe.
Mr. Mizrahi has performed as soloist with the Houston Symphony, National Symphony, Symphony in C (formerly the Haddonfield Symphony), Sioux City Symphony, and Prince Georges Philharmonic Orchestra, performing in venues such as the Kimmel Center, the Kennedy Center, and Houston’s Jones Hall. In 2005 Mizrahi appeared as soloist in Mozart’s Piano Concerto K488 with the Curtis Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Leon Fleisher. He has given solo recitals at the Phillips Collection in Washington, DC and has made repeated appearances on Chicago’s Dame Myra Hess Concert Series. Mizrahi is a founding member of the Moët Trio, which is quickly establishing itself as one of today’s most exciting young piano trios. The Moët Trio is in residence at the New England Conservatory this season. Equally at home with contemporary music, Mizrahi is a founding member of NOW Ensemble, a chamber group devoted to the commissioning and performing of new music by emerging composers.
A winner of Astral Artistic Services’ 2005 National auditions, Mizrahi joined Astral’s artist roster that year. In 2007 Mizrahi was selected to join The Academy: A Program of Carnegie Hall, the Juilliard School, and the Weill Music Institute (ACJW). He is committed to music education, and regularly teaches music at New York City and Philadelphia public schools.
Michael Mizrahi began piano studies at the age of four. He received his Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Spring 2008 from the Yale School of Music, where he studied with Claude Frank.
