About the artist:
Equally at home with solo, chamber, and concerto performances, Solomon Eichner has established himself as an exciting, versatile, young artist who is known for his commanding performances of the romantic keyboard repertoire.
This past summer, Eichner traveled to Italy to participate as a full scholarship recipient in the Perugia Music Festival. In addition to solo performances in the famous Salla Notari Hall, he performed the Grieg Piano Concerto with the Philharmonic Orchestra of the Universidad de Alicante under the baton of Israeli Conductor Uriel Segal. Before Italy, Eichner participated at the prestigious PianoFest in the Hamptons, NY, as a full-scholarship recipient. He also performed for sold-out audiences at the Avram Theater Rachmaninoff's 3rd Piano Concerto.
His D.C. Debut Recital at the Polish Embassy in Washington, D.C., for the Paderewski Scholarship Foundation, was held in April 2015. He has also performed at Steinway Hall, Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall, and Merkin Concert Hall, New York City. Concert series include the Bluthner Concert Series in Adamstown, MD, "The Lives of the Piano," Chopin Marathon Concert at Manhattan School of Music, and the "Afternoon Concert Series" at the State Department in Washington DC, among others.
Originally from Baltimore, Eichner graduated with his Bachelor of Music degree from the Manhattan School of Music, studying with Arkady Aronov; and with his Master of Music degree from the Peabody Conservatory, having studied with Alexander Shtarkman.
Eichner is currently in his final year of the Doctor of Musical Arts degree at the University of South Carolina, as a full scholarship recipient, and holds a graduate assistantship in accompanying. His thesis topic will be a historical catalog of Jewish Concert Pianists from the Golden Age. He is studying with Dr. Marina Lomazov and Dr. Joseph Rackers.
