ABOUT “MULTIPIANO”: “MultiPiano” is a unique keyboard project, presenting four of Israel’s virtuoso pianists in a celebration of pianos in ever-changing combinations – from one to four pianos, from 4 to 8 hands, with or without orchestra. The ensemble’s repertoire ranges from fully-fledged original masterworks to dazzling virtuoso arrangements.

Now in its fourth year, the ensemble has already performed on four continents, from Beijing Concert Hall to Buenos Aires’ Teatro Colon, from New-York’s Merkin Hall to London’s Henri Wood Hall, collaborating with such institutions as the English Chamber Orchestra, the Israel Chamber Orchestra, Buenos Aires Mozarteum Argentino and Conciertos Grapa, the Philharmonic Society of Lima, the music festivals of Taipei, Huallien, Ottawa, Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, as well as on television and radio networks from Asia to South America.

The MultiPiano project was launched in the 2010-11 season under the umbrella of the Buchmann-Mehta School of Music – a joint institution of Tel Aviv University and the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. Featuring three of Israel`s most radiant young pianists and their mentor, Tomer Lev – one of the country’s most prominent musicians – the MultiPiano project attracted much international attention immediately upon its inauguration. In 2011 the group successfully toured the Far East, with performances in Beijing, Taipei, Kaohshiung and Tainan, including a Gala opening of the Kuandu Festival in Taiwan in cooperation with the Israeli Foreign Ministry.

In summer 2012 the group was presented throughout Latin America’s foremost concert halls in Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay and Peru, including Teatro Colon and the Gran Rex (Buenos Aires), Teatro Del Sodre (Montevideo) and a live broadcast performance in Radio Nacional of Argentina, televised by PBS (TV Publica). Additional presentations included performances for the respected Mozarteum Argentino concert agency, The Philharmonic Society of Lima (opening concert of the Jubilee Festival), Sao Paulo Friends of Tel Aviv University, and concerts in Rosario and Cordoba. Shortly thereafter the group performed for the second time in the Far East (Taipei and Hualien International Music Festival).


In spring of 2013 MultiPiano was presented at the Felicja Blumental Music Festival in Tel Aviv and the Israel Festival in Jerusalem, including solo performances with the Israel Chamber Orchestra (Bach-Vivaldi concerto for 4 pianos) and live broadcasts for Israel Radio (IBA). The Tel Aviv Soloists, Haifa Symphony and the Israel Netanya Kibbutz orchestras hosted MultiPiano for performances of Bach, Mozart, Poulenc and Levanon concerti for 2, 3 and 4 pianos. In addition, the ensemble had its third tour to the Far East (Beijing Concert Hall, Tienjin Grand Theatre, Chengdu Music Hall ).


In fall 2013 MultiPiano was presented in two North American tours, including performances at Merkin Hall in New York City, as well as in Montreal, Ottawa, and Chicago. The New York Times described their performance as “a celebration of Multi-hands and Multi-keyboards”.

In Spring 2014 the ensemble toured South America for the second time, as soloists with the Israel Netanya Kibbutz Chamber Orchestra, with concerts in Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Lima and Bogota. In Fall 2014 MultiPiano collaborated with the English Chamber Orchestra in a recording of Mozart Concertos for two and three pianos, as well as in a world premiere recording of Mozart’s “Larghetto and Allegro” – a 1781 fragment left unfinished and completed and orchestrated by Tomer Lev for two pianos and orchestra.

I had never heard Vivaldi’s concerto “Storm at Sea” before. Once I did hear it on the radio, I was hooked. I thought it very intense and full of energy. As I’ve gone through today, it sounds to me like the musical version of a stressful 24 hours–a stormy Monday in particular. And of course […]

Wikipedia:  Concerto Grosso    –

The concerto grosso (Italian for big concert(o), plural concerti grossi) is a form of baroque music in which the musical material is passed between a small group of soloists (the concertino) and full orchestra (the ripieno or tutti). This is in contrast to the concerto which features a single solo instrument with the melody line, accompanied by the orchestra.

The form developed in the late seventeenth century, although the name was not used at first. Alessandro Stradella seems to have written the first music in which two groups of different sizes are combined in the characteristic way. The name was first used by Giovanni Lorenzo Gregori in a set of 10 compositions published in Lucca in 1698.[1]

The first major composer to use the term concerto grosso was Arcangelo Corelli. After Corelli’s death, a collection of twelve of his concerti grossi was published; not long after, composers such as Francesco Geminiani, Pietro Locatelli and Giuseppe Torelli wrote concertos in the style of Corelli. He also had a strong influence on Antonio Vivaldi.

Two distinct forms of the concerto grosso exist: the concerto da chiesa (church concert) and the concerto da camera (chamber concert). (See also Sonata for a discussion about sonatas da camera and da chiesa.) The concerto da chiesa alternated slow and fast movements; the concerto da camera had the character of a suite, being introduced by a prelude and incorporating popular dance forms. These distinctions blurred over time.

Can’t take another moment of Vivaldi’s ubiquitous Four Seasons? Neither could Max Richter, a London-based composer who deftly blurs the lines between the classical and electronic worlds. Long ago he loved it the piece but like some of us, he grew tired of the overplayed warhorse, which can be found in no fewer than 250 recordings on sites like ArchivMusic.

So instead of writing off the piece forever, Richter rewrote it. He discarded about three quarters of Vivaldi’s original, substituted his own music and tucked in some light electronics for a total Four Seasons makeover. It sounds a little hipper — lighter on its feet in places, darker and more cinematic in others. Still, Richter’s remodeled version retains the basic shape, and much of the spirit, of the master’s original four violin concertos — each about ten minutes and in three movements, sequenced fast-slow-fast.

Richter recorded his rejiggered Seasons with violin soloist Daniel Hope and together they brought the project to (Le) Poisson Rouge, the Greenwich Village music space, where we had our cameras set up and ready to roll.

Antonio Vivaldi – The 4 Seasons (Italian: Le quattro stagioni)
English Chamber Orchestra conducted by Leonard Slatkin

Savour the seasons…Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter. Revel in the changes they bring to the spectacular natural world of national parks. Enjoy it all through magical film footage set to the zesty musical spice of Venetian composer Antonio Vivaldi’s masterpiece The Four Seasons.

“Spring” brings a rebirth of nature, lush wildflowers festoon mountains and woodland fields, waterfalls leap and birds soar high on the wings of Vivaldi’s mauci. “Summer’s” heat shimmers over the arches and bridges, mesas and butters of Arches National Park and the desert animals that frolic in Death Valley. “Autumn” with its red and gold palette, colours the glowing, changing foliage of Vermont and New Hampshire. Finally the snowstorms of “Winter” blanket the far reaches of the Grand Tetons, icing the rivers where otters play.

Relish these scenes and many more in this exhilarating serenade to the glories of nature.

The Four Seasons is performed by the English Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Leonard Slatkin.
