Gilead Mishory was born in 1960 in Jerusalem and studied at the Rubin Academy. On the recommendation of Alfred Brendel he completed his studies with Gerhard Oppitz in Munich and with Hans Leygraf in Salzburg at the 'Mozarteum'.
He performs solo, with orchestras and with renowned chamber music partners in Europe, the United States, Japan, Korea and Israel. His extremely wide ranging repertoire includes all musical styles with a special emphasis on the music of the 20th and 21st centuries.
Gilead Mishory is the first pianist to have recorded the complete piano works and chamber music with piano by Leos Janácek. Other CDs with works by Haydn, Brahms, Bartók, his own compositions and numerous radio-recordings received instant critical acclaim. Enthusiastic reviews of the press describe him as a 'magician of sound', a 'technically perfect poet of the piano' and a 'pianist with a sense of sound, charm and esprit'.
