Multi-award-winning pianist  Amit Yahav  is much in demand as a recitalist, chamber musician and concerto soloist. Amit's repertoire stretches from before Bach to contemporary music, although he specialises in the music of the 19th century. Having received high praise for his interpretations of the music of Schumann and Chopin, Amit is currently conducting doctoral research on the latter with the generous support of the Royal College of Music's Polonsky Award. In performance, Amit's interpretations are historically informed, and often made accessible to the audience by spoken introductions which place the works in a historical, social and cultural context. Amit is keen to programme well-known and loved repertoire along lesser-known works.

Amongst Amit's success are the  Anthony Lindsay Piano Prize,  the  Special Jury Prize  at the Northwood-Ruislip Concerto Competition, the  György Solti Award for Professional Development , and the Brooks-van der Pump Pianist Prize at the Royal College of Music. Amit also won the 1st International Israeli Music Competition in London and consequently performed Zvi Avni's  On the Verge of Time  in London's Southbank Centre in the presence of the composer. In 2014, Amit released his newest CD Amit Yahav Plays Chopin , containing the four Ballades alongside the 2 Polonaises op.26 and the C# Minor Scherzo op.39. This release follows Amit's tour showcasing the four Ballades in an explained recital, which was selected by the Royal College of Music as part of their  Insight Series  of soirees offered to their donors.
