Pianist and composer Noam Sivan is a leading pioneer in the revival of improvisation in the classical music world. He improvises fugues and four-movement sonatas in his piano recitals, conducts orchestral and choral improvisations, and collaborates on multidisciplinary improvisations with musicians, singers, dancers, and actors. His solo album Ambiro’s Journey, the first ever piano improvisation studio album featuring more than 70 minutes of continuous music recorded in a single unedited take, has been described as “a new marker in the evolution of improvisation”. Over 50 of his compositions have been performed in Europe, North America, and Asia, including operas, scores for ballet, vocal music, orchestral and chamber works, and evening-long multimedia shows. Born in Haifa, Israel, in 1978, Noam Sivan was a Director of Improvisation at the Curtis Institute of Music and a faculty member at the Juilliard School. Currently he is Professor of Piano Improvisation at the State University of Music and Performing Arts Stuttgart, where in October 2020 he founded a master’s degree program in classical piano improvisation, one of the first such programs worldwide.
