Gilbert Kalish (b1935)

Gilbert Kalish studied piano with Isabelle Vengerova, Leonard Shure and Julius Hereford, and after gaining a Bachelor of Arts degree from Columbia College he continued his studies at Columbia University Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. Kalish gave his New York recital debut at Carnegie Recital Hall playing Bach and Schoenberg, and made his European and London debut in the same year at the Wigmore Hall playing Beethoven, Schubert and Chopin. Kalish then made tours of America, Europe and Australia, and was a founder member of the Contemporary Chamber Ensemble, a new music group that was active in the 1960s and 1970s. During this period he also became pianist of the Boston Symphony Chamber Players with whom he toured Europe, South America and Japan.

In 1987 Kalish, who has had a distinguished academic career as artist in residence and faculty member of many musical institutions in America, received an honorary doctorate from Swarthmore College. He is currently on the faculty of the State University of New York at Stony Brook as Leading Professor and Head of Performance Activities. He has also been a guest on the faculties of the Banff Center and the Steans Institute at Ravinia. In 2002 Kalish was awarded the Richard J. Bogomolny National Service Award for lasting contributions to the field of chamber music through performances, teaching or the championing of the chamber music repertoire.
