Sivan Magen

Harp


Carnegie Hall Date: Oct 21, 2014

Praised by the press as “a magician” (New York’s WQXR), whose “virtuoso playing conjures an astonishing range of colour and dynamic” (The Daily Telegraph), harpist Sivan Magen appeared as a soloist across the US, South America, Europe and Israel, in venues such as Carnegie Hall, Wigmore Hall, Amsterdam’s Musiekgebouw aan’t IJ and the Vienna Konzerthaus, and with orchestras such as the Israel Philharmonic, the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, the Sydney Symphony and the Vienna Chamber Orchestra.

The only Israeli to have ever won the International Harp Contest in Israel and the 2012 Award Winner of the Borletti-Buitoni Trust, Sivan is also an avid chamber musician, has performed at the Marlboro, Kuhmo, Giverny, and Jerusalem International Chamber Music festivals, with Musicians from Marlboro, and is a founding member of the award winning Israeli Chamber Project and of Trio Tre Voci with flautist Marina Piccinini and violist Kim Kashkashian.

Having been invited by Carnegie Hall to return for a recital in fall 2014 to celebrate the American release of his solo CD for Linn records, Fantasien, this season his second solo CD for Linn Records will be released as well as a recording with Trio Tre Voci for ECM. In previous seasons were released to great critical acclaim his CD with the Israeli Chamber Project for Azica Records as well as an all-Britten CD with tenor Nicholas Phan for Avie (listed in the NY Times’ “Best recordings of 2012”).
