Biography

Composer/pianist/arranger Uri Brener was born 1974 in Moscow and has been playing the piano since the age of four. His first compositional attempts go back to the age of seven, and his first acclaimed opuses appeared at the age of 12 (among them symphonic pieces, piano and chamber music). After studying and performing in Russia, Germany and Holland, he then moved to Israel, where he got his PhD with excellence in composition.
Uri`s music is performed worldwide in the most prestigious venues and stages (Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark, Italy, Holland, Canada, USA, Australia, France, Latvia, Lithuania, Czech Republic, Russia, Serbia, Croatia and more; among others in such venues as MOMA in New York, Capitolini Museum in Rome, The Staatliche Antikensammlungen in Munich, Akademie der Schoene Kunste in Berlin, Tel-Aviv Art Museum and others).

Uri has written large variety of compositions in a wide range of styles and genres, which include piano-, chamber-, vocal-, choral-, symphonic-, electro-acoustic, crossover-, experimental- and other kinds of music. His works list also include three piano sonatas, two Piano Concertos, few symphonic poems, four string quartets, two double concertos, Sinfonia Concertante “Faust”, plenty of chamber pieces, Oratorio “Shunamit”, and much more.
Being a skilled pianist himself, Uri performs in many concerts worldwide both alone and cooperation with other musicians, performing his own works, as well as works by other composers. He is taking part in many projects featuring different kinds of music beyond classical, including free- and jazz-improvisation, crossover music, world-music and klezmer.

Uri has participated as a teacher and lecturer in international workshops and master classes; he was invited as a special guest by festivals and was also selected to be a member of a Jury for international and national composition competitions.
Uri joins occasionally broadcasts on Israeli classical music channel `Kol HaMusika` presenting his own music, improvisations and the music by other artists, he has also appeared in TV shows.

Most of Uri`s works are published by IMC (Israeli Musical Center) and IMI (Israeli Music Institute). Brener`s compositions have been released on numerous CDs.

His piano album, titled “A Walk“, consisting mostly of his piano compositions was released during late 2007 and was appraised by the media as “A delightful solo piano blend of modern and ambient jazz” (Jerusalem Post, October 25th, 2007) and it is said to “..testify to Brener’s tendency to blur boundaries between various musical worlds in a productive way”(Haaretz 04/11/2007 ).

Uri has won a series of highly international and national awards and scholarships, among them the 2006 Prime Minister Prize for composition, a prestigious ACUM Award, which he has been awarded three times (2008, 2010 and 2015), a Boston Metro Opera Concert Award at the Contempo Festival Composers` International Competition 2014 in the category “Opera Special Awards” for the Operatorio “Shunamit”.
In 2007 Uri has been appointed, and is still, a composer in residence of the Israeli Sinfonietta Orchestra of Beer-Sheba, Israel with maestro Justus Franz as its chief conductor.
