The AIA held a concert and supper in support of twenty outstanding Israeli students who are seeking to further their studies in the UK. The concert was held at the home of Lilian and Victor Hochhauser on 8th July 2015. The wonderful pianist, Ishay Shaer, played Beethoven and Chopin.
Considered one of the leading Israeli pianists of his generation, Ishay Shaer has performed in numerous concerts throughout the world and has won both national and international prizes.
He has established himself both as a soloist and as a reputable chamber music performer. He has played with cellist Mischa Maisky, the Bennewitz Quartet, the Contempo Quartet and the New Hellenic Quartet.
His recent arrangement for piano trio of Beethoven’s ‘The Tempest’ piano sonata has garnered praise and was described as “an immeasurably pleasing masterwork… sounded like one of Beethoven’s finest trios”- HAARETZ
