Clarinetist Nur Ben Shalom has performed across Europe both as a soloist and as a chamber musician. He has performed in a wide range of venues, such as the Konzerthaus Berlin, the Berliner Philharmonie and Musikverein Wien. 


Outside of his performances, Ben Shalom has diligently researched many forgotten, unknown Jewish composers from the World War II era, aiming to revive and highlight them in the modern cultural discourse and concerts.

After studying with his mentors in Israel, Eva Wasserman and Prof. Izhak Katap, Ben Shalom continued his musical education at the Hochschule Für Musik Hanns Eisler Berlin with Prof. Diethelm Kühn.


Together with the Berliner Philharmonic principal second violinist Christophe Horak, international violist Francesca Zappa and prize-winning pianist Yannick Van de Velde, Ben Shalom founded the Nimrod Ensemble, chamber group.


Ben-Shalom participated in international festivals such as the Luzern music Festival, the Bonn Beethoven Festival, the Podium Festival, the ID festival, the Richard Wagner Festival, Dresdner Musikfestspiele, and many others. He has performed in orchestras such as the German Opera House and Richard Wagner Fest. 

As a Soloist, Ben Shalom has been invited to perform with the Jerusalem Chamber orchestra, the Ra’anana Symphony Orchestra, Rishon-Le’zion Symphony, the Echo Ensemble Hanns Eisler and the Jewish-Arab Orchestra.
