Elisha Abas Solo Piano performs Chopin Schumann Liszt Bach & Gershwin

General Admission $25

Israeli born concert pianist Elisha Abas (the great great grandson of legendary Russian Composer Alexander Scriabin) was a child prodigy who started to perform at the age of six and was the lifelong student of Pnina Salzman, (herself a student of Alfred Cortot) and mentee of Artur Rubinstein. The National Italian Newspaper La Roma commented on a performance in Naples saying, “he is the most refined and interesting pianists of our generation … his playing is the perfect marriage of exuberant musicality restrained with the right dose of rationalism that is rich with colors and shades. His palette shines in all his splendor with a captivating performance of Chopin and Schumann”.


Abas has since shared the stage with Isaac SternLeonard Bernstein and Zubin Mehta, receiving many accolades throughout his career. He continues to perform throughout the world, most recently in North America, Europe, Cuba, Russia, Israel, and China. Elisha Abas is also a composer, but rarely performs his original compositions in public.  However, in 2009, Abas performed his original music in St. Petersburg’s Smonlny Cathedral, United Nations Assembly Hall, and in Teatro Amadeo Roldán in Havana, Cuba. In December 2009, Elisha Abas performed and recorded live the Brahms First Piano Concerto in Havana, Cuba with The National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba conducted by Yoel Gamzou. In 2010, he recorded and released a live recording of the Mozart Piano Concerto No. 23 K488 with The International Mahler Orchestra live in Berlin.
