Giora Schmidt: violin
Rohan De Silva: piano

With his superb tone and pure musicianship, violinist Giora Schmidt (still in his early twenties) has already proven himself an outstanding artist with a highly promising future. His performances are marked by a commanding presence and a richness of color that earn him a reputation as a virtuoso of the “old school,” whose great technique is matched by a very thoughtful musicality. Giora Schmidt recently received the Samuel Sanders Artist Award, presented to him by Itzhak Perlman at the 2005 Classical Recording Foundation Awards Ceremony at Carnegie Hall. He is the recipient of a 2003 Avery Fisher Career Grant as well as numerous other prizes and awards.

Born into a family of professional musicians, Giora Schmidt grew up in Philadelphia, also spending time in Israel. He was a student of the late Dorothy DeLay and Itzhak Perlman at the Juilliard School, where he continues to teach as an assistant to Perlman. Significant landmarks in Schmidt’s 2005/06 season were his European debut at the Louvre recital series in Paris, his Far Eastern debut in a recital in Tokyo, and a debut recital recording. Recent US appearances have included the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, San Diego Symphony, Detroit Symphony, Louisville Symphony, and Chicago Symphony. Pianist Rohan De Silva is a faculty member at the Juilliard School and has accompanied the world’s top violinists, including Itzhak Perlman, Midori, Joshua Bell, Gil Shaham, Vadim Repin, and Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg.
