Amit Yahav is much in demand as a recitalist, chamber musician and concerto soloist. He studied at the Royal College of Music, where recently earned a doctorate for his research into the music of Chopin. Amit has won numerous awards including the Anthony Lindsay Piano Prize, the Special Jury Prize at the Northwood-Ruislip Concerto Competition, the György Solti Award for Professional Development, the Brooks-van der Pump Pianist Prize at the RCM, and the 1st International Israeli Music Competition in London. He specialises in the music of the 19th century, and his performances of the music of Chopin and Schumann in particular have earned him high praise. 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. In 2014, Amit released his newest CD containing the four Chopin Ballades alongside 2 Polonaises op.26 and the 3rd Scherzo. This release followed 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.
