“Beilman played…in heroically broad strokes…the brain behind the sound burst with ideas,
so much that even the most functional passage work was never merely repetitive…
The orchestra matched his energy level every step of the way. What a compelling performance.”
The Philadelphia Inquirer

“Weiss’ playing is at once sensitive and technically dazzling and he manages to elicit
an ethereal quality at just the right moments, for just the right amount of time.
The result is a bewitching sense of yearning and – above all – passion.”
Daily Camera (Boulder, CO)

Benjamin Beilman is recognized as one of the fastest rising stars of his generation, winning praise both for his passionate performances and deep rich tone which the Washington Post called “mightily impressive,” and The New York Times described as “muscular with a glint of violence.” The Times also praised his “handsome technique, burnished sound, and quiet confidence which showed why he has come so far so fast.” Following his First Prize win at the Montreal Competition, the Strad described his performance of the Sibelius Violin Concerto as “pure poetry.”

One of the most sought-after soloists in his generation of young American musicians, the pianist Orion Weiss has performed with the major American orchestras, including the Chicago Symphony, Boston Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic, and New York Philharmonic. His deeply felt and exceptionally crafted performances go far beyond his technical mastery and have won him worldwide acclaim.
