About the Event
Elisha Abas, is a great-great grandson of Russian composer Alexander Scriabin and the last protégé of legendary pianist Arthur Rubinstein. Star pupil of Israel’s eminent pedagogue Pnina Salzman, Abas personifies the strong-willed and highly expressive character – in addition to the prodigal talent – central to the makeup of a true virtuoso.
Called “one of the most refined and interesting pianists of our generation” by La Roma, Abas had abandoned the musician’s life for over a decade to become a professional soccer-player, lawyer and family man only to ultimately make his way back to the piano and share his unique gift with international audiences.

The GetClassical series aims to bring classical music into the new York nightlife scene, reinvigorating a long-lost art and ambiance that’s returning as a part of our zeitgeist. Featuring vigilantly curated guest artists, GetClassical aims to bring new and avid classical consumers together in a salon-like setting, away from the traditional concert venue. It hopes to create a unique atmosphere nurtured by great music that inspires the best in us.
