In his dual role as violinist-composer, Ittai Shapira is a rarity in the 21st century, but follows a long line of musicians who, in writing and performing their own works, have relished both forms of creativity.  
Described by the NY Times as “an Israeli dynamo with a flourishing solo violin career”, Ittai Shapira regularly performs with prestigious artists across the globe.

In his role as a composer, Ittai Shapira continues to write a variety of works, including a Double Violin Concerto entitled "Magyar", performed and recorded in Austria with the Arpeggione Orchestra; a Violin Concerto inspired by Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea, a Violin and Cello Concerto, “Sephardic Journeys”, and a set of Solo Violin Caprices.
