A tradition of recognizing and nurturing emerging talent will continue with a free Discovery Concert by this Young Concert Artists Harriman-Jewell Series prizewinner chosen by Series director Clark Morris. In addition to the Series prize, Gewirtzman also won First Prize of the 2015 Young Concert Artists International Auditions.

Hailed by The Washington Post as an artist of “formidable virtuosity and stylistic sensitivity,” Gewirtzman has impressed audiences around the world. He has performed recitals in London in Steinway Hall and in Paris in the Salle Cortot of the École Normale. He has played throughout Russia and has appeared as soloist with many Israeli orchestras including the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, Israel Symphony Orchestra, Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra, the Israeli Chamber Orchestra, the New Haifa Symphony Orchestra, and the Buchmann-Mehta School of Music Symphony Orchestra.

The 26-year-old pianist started his musical education at the age of 8 at the Rubin Conservatory in Haifa. From 2008 to 2011, he served in the Israeli Defense Forces, in the Outstanding Musician program, where he combined regular military service with extensive music studies. Gerwitzman earned his Master’s degree at The Juilliard School in New York City, where he received the prestigious Kovner Fellowship award.
