Pianist Shai Wosner has attracted international recognition for his exceptional artistry, musical integrity and creative insight. His performances of a broad range of repertoire from Beethoven and Mozart to Schoenberg and Ligeti, as well as music by his contemporaries, communicates his imaginative programming and intellectual curiosity. Mr. Wosner’s virtuosity and perceptiveness have made him a favorite among audiences and critics, who have praised him for his “keen musical mind and deep musical soul” (NPR’s All Things Considered) and for exemplifying a “remarkable blend of the intellectual, physical and even devilish sides of performance” (Chicago Sun Times).

Mr. Wosner has been widely praised for his interpretations of Franz Schubert’s solo works, both in concert and in recording. Following a recent Schubert-themed recital at the Kennedy Center’s Terrace Theater, the Washington Post called his performance “enthralling” and “technically remarkable,” and after his recital debut at Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart Festival in an all-Schubert program, Anthony Tommasini of The New York Times wrote, “In Schubert Mr. Wosner is not afraid to employ an enormous dynamic range. His pianissimos are uncommonly delicate and beautiful. But when the music moves him, his fortissimos can be steely and terrifying…”  Mr. Wosner will continue to present Schubert works in recital throughout the 2013-14 season, with performances at the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, Cal Performances in Berkeley, in Fresno CA and Schenectady NY, at Wigmore Hall in London, and at the Festival de Musica de Camara in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
