Notes & Reviews:

Considered the first lady of the piano in Israel, Pnina Salzman studied in Tel Aviv and Paris. A professor at the Rubin Academy of Music, she has toured the world several times, playing with major orchestras.

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
She plays this music, all in a "Mediterranean" style, sensitively, with an ear for various idioms. Certain techniques recur: various modes, melismas. Landscapes of Israel combines impressionist textures, drones, and precise percussion to depict Galilee, Jerusalem, and Jezreel. 'In Memoriam' of Five Impressions, a serenade, is delicate and lyrical.
