Russian-born American pianist Julia Zilberquit has earned critical acclaim as a recitalist, orchestral soloist, chamber musician and recording artist. A native of Moscow, she graduated from Moscow Gnessin School of Music and later received her Bachelor and Master degrees from The Juilliard School (class of Bella Davidovich). In 1994 Ms Zilberquit won the First Prize at the Vienna International Music Competition. She made her orchestral début at Carnegie Hall, performing Shostakovich’s Concertino (in her own arrangement for piano and chamber orchestra) as part of a tour throughout North America and Israel with the Moscow Virtuosi under Vladimir Spivakov. Her Tchaikovsky Hall début came in 1998 with Constantine Orbelian and the Moscow Chamber Orchestra in Moscow, giving the world première of Sergei Slonimsky’s Piano Concerto, a work dedicated to her.

Julia Zilberquit has since performed with Brooklyn Philharmonic, Vienna Chamber Orchestra, New European Strings, Deutsche Symphony, Moscow Soloists, Cairo Symphony, Moscow Virtuosi, Russian State Orchestra, Bolshoy Orchestra, Musica Viva, St Petersburg Camerata, St Petersburg Cappella, Russian Philharmonia, Moscow Chamber Orchestra, Sinfonietta Cracovia and Sinfonia Varsovia. She discovered a virtually unknown early Piano Concerto by Beethoven and gave its première in 2004 with Yuri Bashmet and ‘Young Russia’ orchestra in Moscow, and with Yuli Turovsky and I Musici de Montréal in Montréal in 2006. As a recitalist, she has appeared in the world’s major concert halls including New York‘s Weill Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall. Engagements at major international music festivals include Seattle, Colmar (France), Klangbogen (Vienna), Gergiev’s ‘White Nights’ (St Petersburg), Richter’s ‘December Nights’ (Moscow), ‘The Palaces of St. Petersburg’ and the Penderecki Festival (Poland). She has also performed under the baton of Yehudi Menuhin at the Beethoven Festival in Vienna and has been the featured artist on WQXR (New York), RadioFrance and DeutschlandRadio.

She now lives in New York City with her husband and two children.
