“A very open-hearted and human approach to music making.”

—George Grella, The Big City


“Ezra was the collaborative pianist for the Spring Masterclass of the Chicago Vocal Arts Consortium. We gave him music ranging from Mahler and Strauss to Schubert Lieder, and with less than a week of preparation he played all of them comfortably and sensitively, giving excellent support to the singers.”

Matthew Peckham, Director of Development and Marketing, Chicago Vocal Artists Consortium

“Ezra worked with me in 2009 as an accompanist during an intense period of operatic rehearsals with the Brooklyn Repertory Opera. The success of this project was very much due to Ezra’s pianistic skill and musical sensitivity. He was a wonderful collaborator – a great colleague.”

Professor Emeritus Harry Saltzman, Brooklyn College Conservatory of Music

“It’s not enough to be just a great musician; Ezra’s other qualities make a collaboration with him truly special.  He’s pleasant, flexible, thoughtful and most of all, just a terrific human being.”

Bridget and Douglas Olenik, KeyWinds Duo
