MENAHEM PRESSLER - PIANIST

Autographed and inscribed 8 x 10 photograph of the great German born, American pianist performing in Berlin, 2014.

Rare pre-1950s photograph of the American pianist (1923- ). Pressler was pursuing a career at the time as a concert pianist and touring throughout the World. He and his family escaped the Holocaust and he made his concert debut with the Palestine Symphony Orchestra, now the Israel Philharmonic. He won the Debussy Prize in San Francisco in 1946 after study with Eliah Rudiakow and Leo Kestenberg. Since 1955 he has taught at Indiana University and the same year formed the Beaux Arts Trio with Bernard Greenhouse and Daniel Guilet. The Trio still exists with Pressler and other musicians. Pressler recorded a rather large library with MGM during the 1950s. The pianist will be 94 this year performed in February with the Fort Worth Symphony during their Mozart Gala!
