– (Libertatea, Bucharest Romania)
Israeli born pianist, Coral Solomon has been praised for her “distinct sensibility” and “original view” (Radio Romania Musical) and has performed numerous solo recitals throughout Canada, USA, Italy, France, Romania, and Israel. She has appeared as soloist with over a dozen orchestras across Canada, Italy, and Romania. She has particularly a vast concertizing history in Romania (her family’s native country) where she performed with the philharmonic orchestras of Sibiu, Timișoara, Brașov, Bacău, Arad, Târgu Mureș, Ploiești, Râmnicu Vâlcea, among others; as well as recitals throughout the main halls in Bucharest, Oradea, Craiova, Sibiu, Bacău, etc… In the summer of 2014, she returned to collaborate with the Bacau Philharmonic Orchestra for the 3rd time, as she debuted a piano concerto transcription of Rachmaninoff’s Variations on a Theme by Corelli, dedicated to her by retired Romanian conductor of New Jersey Plainfield Symphony, Sabin Păuța.
Coral has been awarded several prizes at competitions and has been frequently interviewed by several North American and European television channels, where her performances were broadcasted on national and international transmissions. She has also participated in intensive international summer festivals including the Pianofest in the Hamptons (Long Island, NY), the Morningside Music Bridge Institute (Calgary), the Toronto Summer Music Institute, and the Orford Summer Music Festival (Quebec).
Coral moved with her family to Toronto in 2004 and has been a pre-college student at the Taylor Academy (formerly known as the Young Artist Performance Academy) of the Royal Conservatory of Music. She has completed her undergraduate degree at the Cleveland Institute of Music and her Master’s degree at Boston University, under the tutelage of Antonio Pompa-Baldi and Pavel Nersessian respectively. During her studies in the United States, she was a recipient of the Canada Council for the Arts’ Musician Grant.
Coral is currently pursuing her Doctoral of Music degree in piano performance at the University of Toronto with Enrico Elisi, on a full scholarship. As an active member of the community, she has been invited to adjudicate several festivals/competitions and collaborates in concert with different instrumentalists. She also has a teaching assistantship as a piano collaborator with the undergraduate and graduate violinists at the University, while maintaining a private piano studio at home in North York.
