"Mr. Kam's playing at once mature and youthfully exuberant. He is an attractive, engaging presence onstage"
- THE NEW YORK TIMES
"he is undoubtedly one of the most extraordinary young artists I have heard in recent years."
- DANIEL BARENBOIM
Hailed by the New York Times as "an attractive, engaging presence on stage," violist Ori Kam has performed as soloist on some of the world's premier stages. After his debut at the age of 16 with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Zubin Mehta, he was immediately re-engaged. Since then, he has performed with virtually every orchestra in Israel, the National Symphony at the in Washington DC, the New Jersey Symphony, the Bronxville Symphony, the Manhattan Philharmonia, and Sinfonia Varsovia.
BARTOK VIOLA CONCERTO
A dramatic, sharply contrasting programme that is presented chronologically. The programme begins and ends with music by Mozart and Bartók, the latter's Contrasts producing possibly the most original and captivating contribution to the repertoire for this combination of instruments. In between are works by Schumann and Brahms that contain multi-layered biographical references and are closely related in their romantic spirit.
"Violist Ori Kam played Hindemith's Sonata Op. 11 No. 4 with great warmth and freedom. Born in America but raised in Israel, he is an excellent performer with natural poise and charm;"
- STRINGS MAGAZINE
“Kam projected a warm, honeyed tone flecked with spice. As he progressed through his program, Kam’s timbre turned increasingly complex, like a fine cabernet sauvignon on the palate."
