About the Event

“One was struck not only by the synchronism of their musical impulses, but also by the vigor and elegance of the execution” –The New York Times

Pianists MISHA and CIPA DICHTER, who met at The Juilliard School as students of the legendary Rosina Lhevinne, made their debut joint appearance at the Hollywood Bowl in 1972, four years after their marriage. Subsequently, the Dichters have performed in recital and with major orchestras around the globe.

Misha and Cipa Dichter’s North American engagements have included recitals in all of the major cities in the United States and Canada, as well as appearances with the symphonies of Baltimore, Chicago, Cincinnati, Los Angeles, Pittsburgh and Seattle. Abroad, they have been presented in the music capitals of France, Germany, Holland, Spain and Switzerland.

The Dichters are also frequent and popular guest artists at many of the leading summer music festivals, among them Aspen, Caramoor, Hollywood Bowl, the Mann Center (Philadelphia) Mostly Mozart (New York City) and Ravinia.

CIPA DICHTER was born in Brazil of Polish-Russian parents, and had her initial piano lessons at the age of six. She made her professional debut at 16 with the Orquestra Sinfônica Brasileira, and came to the United States shortly thereafter to study at The Juilliard School.

Now in the sixth decade of a distinguished global career, MISHA DICHTER remains one of America’s most popular artists, extending a musical heritage from the Russian Romantic School, and the German Classical style that was passed on to him by Aube Tzerko, a pupil of Artur Schnabel. He also studied composition and analysis with Leonard Stein, a disciple of Arnold Schoenberg. Misha Dichter has performed and recorded with some of the most illustrious conductors of the 20th and 21st centuries, among them Leonard Bernstein, Valery Gergiev, James Levine, Lorin Maazel, André Previn, Simon Rattle, and many more, while notable chamber music collaborations have included violinists Itzhak Perlman and cellists Yo-Yo Ma.
