A consummate musician recognized for her grace, subtlety and vitality, Orli Shaham has established an impressive international reputation as one of today's most gifted pianists.  Hailed  by  critics  on  four  continents,  Ms.  Shaham  is  in  demand  for  her prodigious skills and admired for her interpretations of both standard and modern repertoire. The New York Times called her a "brilliant pianist," The Chicago Tribune referred to her as “a first-rate Mozartean,” and London's Guardian said Ms. Shaham's playing at the Proms was "perfection."

In 2015, Ms. Shaham released a new solo CD, Brahms Inspired, which includes music by Brahms and his compositional forefathers along with new works by Brett Dean, Avner Dorman and Bruce Adolphe. Also released in 2015 is Ms. Shaham's recording of John Adams' Grand Pianola Music with the pianist Marc-André Hamelin and the San Francisco Symphony. Highlights of the 2015-2016 season include appearances with the St. Louis, Richmond, Milwaukee and Victoria (BC) symphonies and recitals in New York City, Washington  DC and Omaha.  In  addition,  Ms.  Shaham  serves  as  the  Artistic Director for Pacific Symphony’s chamber music series in Costa Mesa, California, a position she has held since 2007, and for the interactive children's concert series, Baby Got Bach, which she founded in 2010.

 

Recent concert highlights include Ms. Shaham’s recital at Chicago Symphony Hall and concerto performances with Orchestre National de France and Sydney Symphony.
