Menahem Pressler, Solo Piano

Menahem Pressler, Solo Piano

...a national treasure.
— Los Angeles Times

A founding member of the renowned Beaux Arts Trio for all of its 51 years, Menahem Pressler is considered one of the greatest painists performing today.  Born in Germany in 1923, Pressler and his family later fled the Nazis to Israel, where he received most of his musical training.  A first-prize win at the Debussy International Piano Competition in 1946 launched his stellar half century (and still going strong!) career of "joyous pianism--technically faultless, stylistically impeccable, emotionally irrespressible."  -The Los Angeles Times.
