“Menahem Pressler is a German-born American pianist and a founding member of the Beaux Arts Trio. He fled Nazi Germany in 1939 and emigrated to Palestine. His career was launched after he was awarded first prize at the Debussy International Piano Competition in San Francisco in 1946. This was followed by his American début with the Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Eugene Ormandy. Since then, Pressler’s extensive tours of North America and Europe have included performances with the orchestras of New York, Chicago, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Dallas, San Francisco, London, Paris, Brussels, Oslo, Helsinki, among others. After a solo career of nearly a decade, he débuted as a chamber musician at the 1955 Berkshire Festival, where he appeared as the pianist of the Beaux Arts Trio, with Daniel Guilet, violin, and Bernard Greenhouse, cello. He worked closely for over 30 years with the Emerson String Quartet.”
