Tickling the Israeli Ivories

Eyran Katsenelenbogen

Born in Israel, Eyran’s first piano teacher was Aida Barenboim, the mother of famed Israeli pianist and conductor, Daniel Barenboim. A descendant of the renowned Rabbi Meir Katzenellenbogen, Eyran played a concert in the rabbi’s hometown of Katzelnbogen, Germany, in 2012 to celebrate its 700th anniversary.

Eyran is known around the world for his piano playing, having played and taught across the globe, and been likened to the great Art Tatum. In the above video, enjoy this Israeli You Should Know as he plays one of Mozart’s piano sonatas — in a boogie-woogie style.
