Notes & Reviews:

Born in Tel Aviv in 1924, Salzman studied with both Alfred Cortot and Magda Tagliaferro at the Paris Conservatory. She has had a long association with the Israel Philharmonic, beginning with its founder, Bronislav Huberman, and was the first Israeli pianist invited to perform in both Russia and China. In Israel she is affectionately known as 'The First Lady of the Piano'. This volume of an ongoing series offers live performances recorded in 1974 & 1983.

Pnina Salzman has long been considered the First Lady of the piano in Israel. Born in Tel Aviv in 1924, she began playing the piano soon after she learned to walk and began performing in public at eight. Alfred Cortot, while on tour in Israel in 1932, heard her and invited her to study in Paris under his personal supervision. In Paris, she studied with Magda Tagliaffero at the Conservatoire National de Musique, where she won the Prix de Piano at age 14. After she became an adult, Pnina Salzman toured all five continents several times, playing with major orchestras under such conductors as Georg Solti, Carlo Maria Giulini, Erich Leinsdorf, and Noam Sheriff . In 1963 she was the first Israeli invited to play in the USSR and in 1994, the first Israeli pianist invited to play in China. She was always an avid chamber music advocate, and an advocate of music education. This release features two Quintets for piano and strings, one by Brahms and one by Schumann.
