Notes and Editorial Reviews

New York based violinist Raphael Klayman has been repeatedly praised for the beauty of his tone, the depth and flair of his musicianship, his vivid rapport with audiences, and his rare balance of virtuosity and sensitivity. He has shared these qualities with audiences through such media as radio, television, concerto performances with orchestra, and innumerable recitals – including a New York Debut at CAMI Hall and a European Debut in Geneva, Switzerland, where he performed at the International Red Cross Museum and at the Palace of Athena. His Geneva Debut formed part of Concerts Atlantique's 1990 European International Festival. Selected through competitive auditions, he was among 54 soloists or ensembles chosen to perform at the Festival Read more from over 1,400 applicants and was one of only two solo violinists so chosen. More recently, he performed as a soloist at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. He has also performed chamber music in a number of venues, including New York's Merkin Hall. He has enlarged his repertoire in a personal way by composing a number of cadenzas and making numerous arrangements. Read less
