“Young Canadian pianist Coral Solomon demonstrated a remarkable maturity of interpretation, musicality, and sensibility which proved a great talent and an intelligent and original approach”
– (Libertatea, Bucharest Romania)
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 (including the philharmonic orchestras of Sibiu, Timisoara, Brasov, Arad, Tergu Mures, Ploiesti, among others). In the Summer of 2014 she has debuted a piano concerto transcription of Rachmaninoff’s Variations on a Theme by Corelli, dedicated to her by the retired conductor of New Jersey Plainfield Symphony, Sabin Pautza. The premiere took place with the Bacau Philharmonic Orchestra (Romania) conducted by the composer himself. Coral has been frequently interviewed by several North American and European television channels and her performances were broadcasted on national and international transmissions. She has also participated in intensive 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 while maintaining her private piano studio at home in North York.
