"I have heard Ori Kam on several occasions over the last few years and have always been deeply impressed with his playing. He possesses a rare combination of musical talent, technical facility, intelligence, and charisma, and he is undoubtedly one of the most extraordinary young artists I have heard in recent years."

"I have heard many young viola players recently, and I am convinced that none is as extravagantly, naturally gifted as Ori Kam. He is already a great player, with a distinctive dark full sound, and an equally distinctive big personality! I have loved hearing him in the Berliner Philharmoniker, and he will be much missed. My advice would be to grab this talent while you can, and I would recommend him without reserve."
Sir Simon Rattle
Music Director, Berliner Philharmoniker
