Kalichstein was born in Tel Aviv in 1946 and came to the United States in 1962. He studied piano with Joshua Shor in Israel and Edward Steuermann and Ilona Kabos at the Juilliard School in New York. In 1967, two years prior to gaining a master's degree at Juilliard, he made his New York recital debut and won the Young Concert Artists' Award. In 1968, he appeared on national television in his first guest appearance with the New York Philharmonic, under the direction of Leonard Bernstein.
Kalichstein has worked with many artists during his career. Among them are violinist Jaime Laredo and cellist Sharon Robinson, with whom Kalichstein performed regularly for approximately five years before the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio was officially formed in 1981. He continues to perform in music capitals the world over as recitalist, soloist with orchestra, and chamber musician.
Kalichstein has collaborated with such celebrated conductors as Daniel Barenboim, Pierre Boulez, Christoph von Dohnányi, Zubin Mehta, André Previn, George Szell, and Erich Leinsdorf. His orchestral engagements have included performances with the Boston, Chicago, London, and Vienna Symphony Orchestras; the Berlin, London, and New York Philharmonics; the Cleveland Orchestra; and the English, Scottish, Franz Liszt, and St. Paul Chamber Orchestras.
Anderson is the first city in the Midwest to be chosen as a site for a piano recital series underwritten by the Adams Foundation. The Adams Foundation Recital Series, funded by businessman and philanthropist Stephen Adams, is dedicated to the revival of solo piano concerts in cities and smaller towns across the United States.
