The American pianist Adam Neiman made his concerto début at the age of eleven in Los Angeles’ Royce Hall. At the age of fifteen he won second prize at the Casagrande International Piano Competition in Italy, the youngest winner in the competition’s history and in 1995 became the youngest ever winner of the Gilmore Young Artist Award. The following year he won the Young Concert Artists International Auditions, and went on to make his Washington D.C. and New York recital débuts at the Kennedy Center and the 92nd Street Y. Two-time winner of Juilliard’s Gina Bachauer International Piano Competition, Neiman was honored with the Rubinstein Award upon his graduation in 1999, the same year in which he received the Avery Fisher Career Grant.
His principal teachers have included Trula Whelan, Hans Boepple, Herbert Stessin, and Fanny Waterman, and he has participated in master-classes with legendary pianists György Sandor and Jacob Lateiner. His career has brought performances throughout the world in collaboration with leading orchestras and conductors, in chamber music and in recitals, with recordings and broadcasts, as well as compositions.
