At the age of 93, Menahem Pressler has six decades of musical activity behind him and a long relationship with the Gulbenkian Foundation as a member of the impressive Beaux Arts Trio, an ensemble that has established him as one of the most admired chamber music players in the world. At the same time, in his solo recitals, he has developed a solid reputation as one of the most notable pianists alive. Pressler’s utter vital energy continues to infect his performances and all the musicians who join him on the stage.
