SARA DAVIS BUECHNER ENDS THE SERENATA MUSIC 2016-2017 SEASON ON A HIGH NOTE.
Sara's program of Mozart, Chopin, Ibert and Taku reinforced her reputation as a consummate artist who enjoys introducing audiences to less well known works. Her informal stage presence and spectacular performance was instantly accepted by an appreciative audience.
This past season has presented a wonderful array of music. We started with the trio of Scott St. John, violin, James Sommerville, French horn, and Peter Longworth, piano, who intoduced us to a new Canadian work by Vivian Fung. This was followed by bassist extraordinaire Joel Quarrington, who with Peter Longworth, piano, showed us the breadth of music to be made on the largest of the violin family. Then came sensational young Candian pianist Jan Lisiecki who wowed the audience with his musicality and intelligent interpretaions of many composers. The tribute to organ maker, Gabriel Kney, with organists Michael Bloss and Andrew Sinclair playing the Kney organ proved to be a musical treat as well as an emotional event. We complete the season with our good friend Sara Davis Buechner, who delighted our audience with her humour and pianistic wizardry.
We look forward to seeing you this Saturday as well as next fall when we present David Jalbert, and the Clarion Quartet . We will announce the winter-spring concerts shortly.

OUR 2016-17 SEASON is BELOW AS WELL AS A PREVIEW OF THE FALL 2017 SEASON.

Biographies

Alon Goldstein, Piano
Saturday, May 2, 2015, 8 P.M.
Alon Goldstein, piano, in a program bridging the gap between the Romantic and the Modern musical periods. Works by Shubert, Liszt, Janáček, and Debussy provide an eclectic survey of where music was heading prior to the disrupting events of the first half of the 20th century.
Note there is a change in the program.
Schubert, Sonata No.19 in C minor;
Liszt, From Années de pèrelinage; Last scene from Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde;
Janacek, Piano Sonata I.X.1905;
Debussy, Selections from Preludes, Book II.
It is a pleasure to welcome back Alon Goldstein to the Serenata Music stage after a four year absence. He is one of the most original and sensitive pianists of his generation, admired for his musical intelligence, dynamic personality, artistic vision and innovative programming. He has played with the Israel, London, Radio France, and Los Angeles Philharmonic orchestras as well as the Philadelphia, San Francisco, Baltimore, St. Louis, Dallas, Houston, and Vancouver symphonies under such conductors as Zubin Mehta, Herbert Blomstedt, Vladimir Jurowski, Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos, Leon Fleisher, Peter Oundjian, Yoel Levi and others. Over the past several years he has also taught and played at the Steans Institute of the Ravinia Festival, New York’s International Keyboard Festival and "Tel Hai” international piano master classes held in Israel. He recently played and recorded the Mendelssohn Concertos Nos. 1 and 2 with the Israel Chamber Orchestra conducted by Yoav Talmi. This collaboration scored a major success on a 17-concert Latin American tour. In addition to his solo performances he plays with the the Goldstein-Peled-Fiterstein Trio.
