Audition video


Ari Livne, one of three American pianists selected as a Presidential Scholar in the Arts, was also a Gold Award winner at the youngARTS competition in Miami, FL. Active as a collaborator and solo artist, Ari premiered a new set of songs by the composer Cyrus Von Hochstetter at Juilliard’s Paul Hall in February 2014, and presented a recital of Brahms’ last four completed works at the same venue the previous October. He was one of two Juilliard students selected to perform at the Kyoto International Music Festival in Kyoto, Japan, and he has appeared regularly at the Hudson Chamber Society and at Piano on Park. Ari has performed for Dr. Alexander Scriabine and Dr. Christine Scriabine, close relatives of the composer Alexander Scriabin, and he gave both a solo recital and a recital of Beethoven Violin Sonatas on successive evenings at the State College Piano Festival in 2012.
