Described by many as “one of a kind” and “a poetic genius”. He has “the quality to sing his musical phrases in time, yet as free as can be…He is a poet using piano keys instead of words…he is the type of musician that only comes around once in a generation”. Elisha Abas is a consummate artist who projects a rare combination of intellect, elegance and pedigree. A mentee of Artur Rubinstein and a student of the Alfred Cortot School, Elisha touches an audience’s heart with his authentic spirit and electrifying rhythm. Likely inherited from his great-great grandfather, legendary Russian composer Alexander Scriabin, his rare interpretations are strongly reminiscent of the old masters. With his debut on the world stage at the prodigal age of six, Elisha performed at numerous international venues, including major concert halls in the US. In November 2007, Abas returned to Carnegie Hall, performing to standing ovations at the sold-out venue – on the same stage where, at age eleven he had first appeared alongside Issac Stern and Leonard Bernstein to honor the life of his mentor, Artur Rubinstein.
