Renowned Israeli cellist Benjamin Shapira is the winner of numerous competitions and awards. Following the footsteps of other major artists of Israeli origins, Shapira's talent was recognized at a very early age. He was hand-picked by Isaac Stern to join a small selected group of protÃ©gÃ© young artists at the Jerusalem Music Center, where he worked under many celebrated cellists, including Janos Starker, Leonard Rose and others. After his celebrated Carnegie Hall performance of the Complete Bach Suites for Cello Solo, was immediately invited to perform the Complete Beethoven Cello Sonatas in Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall. Since, he is in constant demand as a soloist, performing all over the United States and abroad.
Pianist Shulamith Shapira was merely sixteen when she graduated from the State Conservatory of Music in Bucharest under the supervision of legendary teacher Florica Musicescu, whose list of students included such world renowned artists as Dino Lipatti and others. Ms. Shapira is a very active chamber musician and recitalist, both in her native country, Israel, as well as in the US. Among her recordings are numerous recitals recorded for the Israeli National Radio.
