Natan Brand (1944–1990) was an Israeli classical pianist.
Brand was the son of a doctor, Aron Brand, and his wife, Mala, who immigrated to Mandate Palestine in 1939. The family settled in Jerusalem. Brand began his studies as a child prodigy at the age of seven, with Haim Alexander at the Rubin Academy, where he later received an Artist's and Teacher's diploma. He made his orchestral debut at the age of 11, playing with the Israel Broadcasting Authority Symphony Orchestra.
Brand married Lori Hillman, with whom he had two sons, Jesse and Ari. He died in 1990 at the age of 46.
Geoffrey Dorfman: "... Brand ... was one of the few keyboard artists — perhaps the last — in the true tradition of Anton Rubinstein: a pianist who played in the Grand Style, fully free to interpret the masterworks as the spirit moved him, with a magnificent technique at his command. His premature death at the age of 46 robbed the music world of a man who was considered by many connoisseurs to be potentially one of the world’s greatest pianists. That he was not so recognized was due to his mercurial temperament (which did him little good in the world of concerts and bookings) and his early death."
