Tonight: Goldstein-Peled-Fiterstein Trio

On Friday, April 19, 7:30 pm, the Brattleboro Music Center will present the Goldstein-Peled-Fiterstein Trio, at Centre Congregational Church in Brattleboro, VT.

Bound by their Israeli roots, pianist Alon Goldstein, cellist Amit Peled, and clarinetist Alex Fiterstein formed the Goldstein-Peled-Fiterstein Trio in 2005. Today, the ensemble’s performances reflect both the special gifts and originality of the three artists as soloists as well as their marvelous sense of ensemble and love of chamber music. 

Alon Goldstein, pianist, is one of the most compelling artists of his generation, admired for his musical intelligence and dynamic personality. Mr. Goldstein’s artistic vision and innovative programming have made him a favorite with audiences and critics alike throughout the United States, Europe, and Israel. In 2009 he gave the world premiere of Lost Souls, the enthusiastically received concerto written by fellow Israeli, Avner
Dorman, with the Kansas City Symphony and Michael Stern. He has been hailed across the country as a superb artist and exciting soloist with such orchestras as Philadelphia, St. Louis, Los Angeles, San Francisco and many others, and as a sensitive chamber music artist.

Amit Peled, a musician of profound artistry and charismatic stage presence, is acclaimed as one of the most exciting cellists on the concert stage today. Mr. Peled, recently described by the American Record Guide as “having the flair of the young Rostropovich”, has performed as a soloist with many orchestras and in the world’s major concert halls, including: Carnegie Hall and Alice Tully Hall, New York; Salle Gaveau, Paris; Wigmore Hall, London; Konzerthaus, Berlin; and Tel Aviv's Mann Auditorium. Peled has been a frequent guest artist at prestigious festivals such as the Marlboro, Newport and Seattle Music Festivals, Heifetz International Music Institute, Schleswig Holstein and Euro Arts Festivals in Germany, Gotland Festival in Sweden, Prussia Cove Festival in England, the International Violoncello Congress in Spain, and the Kfar Blum Music Festival in Israel.

Alexander Fiterstein is one of the world's exceptional clarinet players. A recipient of the 2009 Avery Fisher Career Grant Award, first-prize winner of the Carl Nielsen International Clarinet Competition and the Young Concert Artists International Auditions, he appeared with the Orchestra of St. Luke’s at Lincoln Center, Vienna Chamber Orchestra, Polish Kammerphilharmonie, Danish National Radio Symphony Orchestra, Israel Chamber Orchestra, Jerusalem Symphony, Tokyo Philharmonic and China National Symphony Orchestra. In recital,
Mr. Fiterstein has appeared at the National Gallery of Art, Kennedy Center, 92nd Street Y, Carnegie’s Weill Hall, the Louvre in Paris, and Suntory Hall in Tokyo. 

For their Brattleboro appearance, the Trio will perform Beethoven’s Trio for Clarinet, Cello and Piano in B-flat; Liszt’s Paraphrase on Verdi’s Aida; Debussy’s Premiere Rhapsody for Clarinet and Piano; Cassado’s Requiebros
for Cello and Piano; Bloch’s From Jewish Life: Prayer; and Brahms’ Trio for Clarinet, Cello and Piano in A minor.

Join the Brattleboro Music Center for the Goldstein-Peled-Fiterstein Trio on Friday, April 19, 7:30 pm, at Center Congregational Church in Brattleboro, VT.  This is the final concert in the BMC’s 2012-13 Chamber Music Series. To purchase tickets ($30, $20, $10) call the BMC at 802-257-4523 or visit bmcvt.org.  The BMC’s Chamber Music Series is made possible through donor support and the support of Vermont Public Radio.
