“Kohlberg showed an intuitive understanding of Schumann’s music, the fleeting sense of fancy, here light as a spider web and then crashing down with heavy-footed fury, both humorous and self-righteous.” – The Washington Post

“And when the music ends, if you’re not deeply moved by the depth of Kohlberg’s insight, you might want to check your pulse.” – NPR

Described as “the pianist with golden hands” by international media, Jerusalem-born and Israeli native Yaron Kohlberg is one of today’s top Israeli pianists. He has played in major halls in 40 countries spanning five continents and has won more than ten international prizes, including the second prize at the 2007 Cleveland International Piano Competition.

Mr. Kohlberg has arrived in Cleveland after spending the last few years traveling around the world, performing in various concerts and presenting master classes and workshops. He was also a part of the highly successful piano duo, Duo Amal, where he teamed up with friend Bishara Haroni.

Mr. Kohlberg, who speaks six languages, holds a graduate degree (with distinction) from the Buchmann-Mehta school of music of Tel Aviv University.
