Acclaimed pianist Benjamin Hochman explores Jewish motifs in classical music and performs works by prominent Jewish composers from Europe, Israel and the USA. Though only in his mid-twenties, he is an imaginatively mature artist with an innate ability to combine beauty of line within the overall shape of a piece. Mr. Hochman has appeared with the world’s great orchestras including the New York Philharmonic, the Chicago, Cincinnati, and Seattle Symphonies, the National Arts Centre Orchestra in Ottawa and the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. Hochman will shed light on music by Mendelssohn, Ben-Haim and others and will look at the ways in which these composers relate to Jewish traditions and symbolism in music.
