Sharon Rosner (Conductor, Viola da gamba)

Born: 1974 - Tel Aviv, Israel

The Israel conductor and viola da gamba player, Sharon Rosner, is today one of the most prominent musicians in the field of early music in Israel. He began his musical studies at age 6 and is a graduate of the Beer-Sheva conservatory and the high school for arts and sciences in Jerusalem. After studying double-bass at the Royal Conservatory in Den Haag, and at the University of California, San Diego, he discovered early music and the viola da gamba, and continued to teach himself the instrument and the repertoire, while taking master-classes with renowned musicians such as Jordi Savall and Pedro Memelsdorff.

In 2003 Sharon Rosner returned to Israel, and has since played in most Israeli Baroque ensembles, including the Jerusalem Baroque Orchestra and the renaissance ensemble Qui Regna Amore. He has appeared at the Red Sea Jazz festival, the Abu Gosh festival, the Israel festival and on Israel's other main venues.

In 2006 Sharon Rosner founded together with harpsichordists Zohar Shefi the Antique ensemble, a chamber group dedicated to French Baroque music, which has won acclaim, and has since held a concert series in Tel Aviv, Haifa and other cities. In 2008 the couple founded the Israeli Bach Soloists, an ensemble dedicated to the music of J.S. Bach, which is presenting for the first time in Israel an authentic Bach cantata cycle throughout the country. Sharon is the pupil of Maestro Ronen Borshevsky.
