Israeli pianist Inbar Rothschild has given concerts throughout Israel, Europe and New-York, and recorded to Israeli, Czech and Swiss Radio stations. She performed as a soloist with the Haifa Symphony Orchestra, the Carter Symphony Orchestra and the Israeli Conservatory's Chamber Orchestra.

Inbar studied under the guidance of Prof. Pnina Salzman, Mrs. Dina Turgeman and Mrs. Adina Wertheim. She started her piano studies at the Israeli Conservatory of Music and proceeded to complete her Bachelor's degree (summa cum laude) and Master's degree (magna cum laude) at the Buchmann-Mehta School of Music in the Tel-Aviv University while serving in the IDF as an Outstanding Musician. In addition, Inbar received private lessons from acclaimed pianist Murray Perahia, performed in masterclasses with musicians such as Boris Berman, Alexander Korsantia and Victor Rosenbaum, and participated in a workshop in Switzerland with Maestro Alexis Weissenberg. Currently, Inbar is pursuing a Ph.D. in performance practice at the Royal Academy of Music in London.

Inbar Rothschild won prizes in several competitions, including the Chopin Competition in Tel-Aviv (2001), the Franck Peleg Piano Competition (1999), the Polina Levinne Prize (1997), and a special prize in the Tel-Hai International Piano Master-Classes Course (2003). In addition, she regularly received annual excellence scholarships from the America-Israel Cultural Foundation and from the Buchmann-Mehta School of Music between 2000-2008, and was also awarded a Certificate in Recognition of Outstanding Academic Achievements by the Dean of the Tel Aviv University Arts Faculty twice. 

In 2013 Inbar co-founded, alongside Dr. Yotam Baruch, the Chamber Concerto Club, an ensemble dedicated to bringing classical repertoire to wider and more diverse audiences, playing eclectic programs that combine different musical genres, original materials and arrangements, including musical lectures and literary-musical collaborations, supported by the Ministry of Culture in Israel.

As a researcher, Inbar's study How music touches: Musical parameters and listeners’ audio-tactile metaphorical mappings was published in SAGE's Psychology of Music journal as well as in the International Conference on Music Perception and Cognition 10 in Sapporo, Japan, where she also received the Young Researcher Award on the piece.

Inbar's current research at the Royal Academy of Music - In Search of Poetic Understanding - focuses on the interpretation approach and methods of her late teacher - the great Israeli pianist Pnina Salzman, and her mentor - the legendary Alfred Cortot, collecting and preserving rare materials from pupils, colleagues and private archives, alongside Inbar's unique personal knowledge and experience as a pupil of their tradition.
