Dear Friends!

I am delighted to be hosting the 5th year – and 10th Season! – of the Grinberg Classical Salon Series on New York’s Upper West Side, in revival of the elegant European tradition of Hausmusik in an intimate and enlightening private setting. 

This Winter / Spring 2018, I am thrilled to curate a series of French-themed salons in celebration of the 350th birthday of Francois Couperin (1668-1733) – a renowned French Baroque composer, organist, and harpsichordist, nicknamed as “Couperin le Grand” (“Couperin the Great”).

On Sunday, January 14th, 2018, at 5 p.m. & Wednesday, January 17th, 2018, at 7 p.m., I will kick off the Season with my solo keyboard program – French Bach I – in which I will showcase four of Bach’s majestic French Suites (Nos. 1, 2, 4, 6) alongside his youthful and very seldom-heard Suite in A Major, BWV 832, inspired by the French style. Later in month, on January 28/31, don’t miss my sequel, French Bach II, which will  include Bach’s two other majestic French Suites (Nos. 3 & 5) alongside his resplendent  masterpiece, Overture in the French Style. In February – the month of Aquarian geniuses! – don’t miss a delightful all-Mozart program – Mozart a Paris – that I will be playing with violinist, Emilie-Anne Gendron, on Feb. 15/18, followed by an enchanting Music for Flute, Cello, and Piano on Feb. 25/28; a program of French Masterworks for Cello and Piano – Part I with cellist Ben Capps on March 11/14, an evocative violin-piano program – French Impressions I – with violinist, Emilie-Anne Gendron on March 24/28; an alluring French Flute salon with the brilliant flutist, Jesse Han, on April 8/11; Part II of the French Masterworks for Cello and Piano with cellist Ben Capps on April 22/25; a charming showcase of French Gems for Piano Four-Hands with fellow Russian-born pianist, Elena Kushnerova, on May 5/6; French Impressions II with violinist, Emilie-Anne Gendron, on May 23rd; an electrifying French Piano Trios program with violinist Eric Silberger and cellist ben Capps on June 2/3; an amorous French Romance program with coloratura soprano, Patricia Sonego, on June 9/10; and, for the grand Season Finale, my solo lecture-performance in Celebrating Couperin Le Grand on June 24/27. To preview the complete Winter / Spring 2018 salon calendar and to purchase tickets, scroll down below.
