 Update me on new releases by Zilberstein

Lilya Zilberstein

Zilberstein began to play the piano from the age of five and a year later commenced lessons with Ada Traub at the Gnessin School of Music in Moscow. At fourteen she graduated with distinction and continued her studies with Alexander Satz at the Gnessin Institute, graduating in 1988. By 1985 Zilberstein had won first prize at the Russian Federal Republics’ Competition and was a prizewinner at the Pan-Soviet Competition in Riga, but because the Gnessin Institute was geared to producing teachers rather than performers, she was unable to enter international piano competitions; that privilege was for the students at the Moscow Conservatory. However, when Zilberstein was permitted to compete, she won first prize at the Ferruccio Busoni International Piano Competition in Bolzano and that launched her career. She also won the audience prize at the Busoni Competition.

On her first extended tour of the West in 1988, Zilberstein played in Italy and subsequently in Germany, Austria, France and the United States. After her debut with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra and Claudio Abbado, Zilberstein appeared in Japan and performed with many of the world’s great orchestras including the London Symphony, the Concertgebouw, Leipzig Gewandhaus, Dresden Staaskapelle and the Chicago Symphony. In 1990 Zilberstein settled in Hamburg with her husband and family.
