Notes and Editorial Reviews

Ishay Shaer is steadily becoming one of the leading pianists of his generation and this November releases Late Beethoven on Orchid Classics. Following his acclaimed debut album nearly a decade ago, Ishay’s latest release presents Beethoven’s late masterpieces. In this exploration of Beethoven’s piano repertoire, Ishay presents two contrasting styles of Beethoven’s compositional technique; short and intense Bagatelles alongside two longer Piano Sonatas. In recent years Ishay Shaer has established himself as a reputable chamber music performer. He has played with cellist Mischa Maisky, the Bennewitz Quartet, Carducci Quartet, the RTÉ Contempo Quartet and the New Hellenic Quartet. His arrangement for piano trio of Beethoven's 'The Read more Tempest' piano sonata has garnered praise and was described as "an immeasurably pleasing masterwork… sounded like one of Beethoven's finest trios" by Haaretz newspaper.
