The Betsy - South Beach, in partnership with Miami International Piano Festival, present a new series of intimate, classical piano performances in the round.
Featuring The Betsy Writer's Room Artist in Residence, Amir Katz
“He possesses such a refinement of tone, such sense of touch, such finesse in his hands, his head and his heart that one can only kneel before so much delicacy, so much suppleness.” Rondo Magazine, Tom Persich.
Born in Israel in 1973, Amir Katz first began his piano studies with Hanna Shalgi at age eleven. At the age of fifteen, he was already playing with the Haifa Symphony Orchestra and the Israel Chamber Orchestra. After winning several national competitions and receiving a scholarship from the America-Israel Cultural Foundation and the Clairmont Award, Katz moved to Europe, supported by other fellowships, including a DAAD grant, to continue his studies. He performs in the most distinguished halls in Europe, Asia and North America, such as the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris, the Rudolfinum in Prague, the Tonhalle Zürich, the Philharmonie in Berlin and the Lincoln Center New York. Additionally, he has given concerts at international music festivals, such as the Savannah Music Festival, the Festival de Radio France et Montpellier, as well as the Oleg Kagan Musikfest Kreuth.
