About: Eric Charnofsky

As a collaborative pianist he has performed throughout North America, has concertized with members of major American orchestras, and has performed as an orchestral keyboardist with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Cleveland Orchestra, among others. A graduate of The Juilliard School where he majored in piano accompanying, Mr. Charnofsky also holds degrees in solo piano performance and composition from California State University, Northridge, where he received the Outstanding Bachelor’s Degree Graduate award in music. Originally from Los Angeles, Mr. Charnofsky currently works as an Instructor at Case Western Reserve University, teaching music-related seminars and keyboard ensemble, accompanying for the Case Concert Choir, and serving as Coordinator of Undergraduate Enrollment for the music department.

His 2016-released CD with flutist George Pope features works by seven living composers, including Mr. Charnofsky’s own “Four Characters.” A reviewer on clevelandclassical.com recently wrote: “Eric Charnofsky is a superb partner at the piano, undaunted by the most complicated keyboard writing — including his own.” His compositions have been performed in several major U.S. cities, and he was named "Composer of the Year" for 2012 by the Ohio Music Teachers Association. He has received composition commissions from Pacific Serenades, the Chamber Music Society of Ohio, the Cleveland Chamber Collective, and others.
