“Vadim Monastyrski is one of those rarely encountered pianists who, though gifted with truly outstanding virtuosity, uses his technical brilliance entirely in the service of the work he performs.”
Cape Town Hearld, South Africa
Pianist Vadim Monastyrski, a Professor of Piano at the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance, received his musical education from the Moscow Gnessin Institute under the guidance of Theodor Gutman (pupil of the legendary Henrich Neihaus). Monastyrski was a Bronze Medalist of Liszt - Bartok International Piano Competition in Budapest, Hungary in 1976, and a winner of a Gold medal at the Haendel International Festival in Halle, Germany in 1979.
Monastyrski’s engagements with orchestras include performances with such symphony orchestras as Budapest Philharmonic, Moscow Philharmonic, Leningrad Symphony, Lugano Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana, Jerusalem Symphony, Tel-Aviv Philharmonic, Johannesburg National Symphony, and Cape Town Symphony Orchestra. He has performed under the baton of such renowned conductors as Jan Ferencik, Veronika Dudarova, Sergei Provatorov, Dmitri Serov, Dudu Shalon, Jose Serebrier, and Isaac Karabtchevsky.
Professor Monastyrski is in residence at the Cali School of Music for the Fall Semester as a Visiting Artist Scholar of the Global Education Center. He is teaching Piano Master Classes, Piano Accompanying Classes, and coaching chamber music groups during his time here.
