Pianist and composer Noam Sivan (b. 1978) has appeared in the United States, Canada, England, France, Austria, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, and throughout his native Israel. His performing repertoire includes concertos from Mozart – with newly composed cadenzas – to Mr. Sivan’s own piano concerto, which he premiered in the double role of soloist & conductor. He also performed the Asian premiere of Viktor Ullmann’s Piano Concerto with the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra, and Bach’s Goldberg Variations for a broadcast on Israeli TV. His Chopin & Improvisations CD will be released in 2012. His compositional output includes over 40 works in operatic, symphonic, and chamber genres. These have been performed by the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra, Choreographic Institute of the New York City Ballet, and Mannes Opera, among others. One of the young pioneers in the revival of improvisation in classical music today, Noam Sivan is on the faculties of the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia and Mannes College in New York, where he founded improvisation workshops. He holds a doctorate from the Juilliard School.
