Chronicle of the NonPop Revolution
Rami Bar-Niv is one of Israel's most acclaimed and sought-after pianists. He travels extensively and has become an international citizen, concertizing all over the world. Busy with a concert career, Rami started devoting more time to composing music later in life. His compositions are published, recorded and performed all over the world.
Born in Tel-Aviv, he graduated with honors from the Rubin Academy of Music. He studied composition with Israel's foremost composers, amongst them Paul Ben-Haim, Alexander Boskovitch and Oedeon Partosh. Rami was the recipient of many prizes and scholarships. He won the America-Israel Cultural Foundation Competition and was awarded a scholarship to further his studies in the United States. After graduating from the Mannes College of Music in New York, where he studied with the renowned Mme. Nadia Reisenberg, he won numerous competitions and embarked on a highly successful concert career. Ever since, he performs regularly in North, Central and South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and of course Israel, where he received the "Best Performer Award" from the Israeli government. Often sent abroad by the Foreign Ministry to represent Israel in concerts, he has become an ambassador of goodwill for Israel.
Rami's recordings for CBS and other labels in Israel and abroad have met with praise and popularity. His recordings have also been very successful on the Internet and he has often been at the top of the charts (MP3.com & others).
Rami Bar-Niv made history by being the first, and so far the only, Israeli artist to perform in Egypt following the Begin/Sadat Peace Treaty.
