Notes & Reviews:

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.
