He has performed in the world’s greatest halls — including New York’s Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center, Washington’s Kennedy Center, London’s Albert Hall — and with leading orchestras, such as the New York Philharmonic, BBC Symphony, and the Warsaw Philharmonic. An inspiring teacher, Kobrin recently joined the faculty of the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York, and has served on the jury of several prestigious competitions.
