Violinist Itamar Zorman was one of several Heifetz Institute alums to return to the Institute as an Artist in Residence for the Institute’s 20th Anniversary Season in 2016. In 2011, Itamar became the second prize winner of the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow (where Daniel Heifetz was a medalist), and the same year won both the Arriaga Competition and grand prize at the Coleman Chamber Music Competition. In 2012 he became a winner of the Concert Artists Guild Competition and in 2013 was awarded Avery Fisher Career Grant as well as a scholarship from the America Israel Cultural Foundation.
Our Video of the Week features Itamar in performance with pianist Alexander Tentser at a dazzling mini-recital they presented at a Heifetz Sunday Matinee during the 2016 Festival of Concerts at Mary Baldwin University. Here they play Franz Schubert’s Rondo Brillant in B minor, D. 895. And if you’d like to catch every new Heifetz Institute video, click on this link to subscribe to our acclaimed YouTube channel!
