HAPPY NEW YEAR AND WELCOME TO THE 2018 PROGRAMS.
We now look forward to the first concert of the 2018 season with TOM ALLEN and LORI GEMMEL as they take us back to mythological times with their production of "The Crown of Ariadne in Story and Music"". This is a unique Serenata Music presentation which should be both entertaining and educational.

Our final concert on Saturday, March 17, "THE LONDON CONNECTION 3", features several musicians who have connections to our city. It will be an all Schubert program and, as with our previous LONDON CONNECTION concerts, the combination of instruments will vary throughout the evening. You will hear the String Trio in B-flat, the Fantasy for Violin & Piano, and the Trout Quintet. We look forward to welcoming Scott St. John, violin, Katie McBean, viola, Fiona Robson, cello, Joe Phillips, double bass, and Angela Park, piano to our stage for a great musical event.

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.
