Grinberg Classical Salon Series

Upcoming Salons | 2017 |  2016 | 2015 | 2014 | 2013

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 Fall, I am thrilled to curate a series of Spanish-themed salons in celebration of the 150th birthday of Enrique Granados (1867-1916) – a notable Spanish pianist-composer at the turn of the 20th century who pioneered a uniquely Spanish style and was of great influence on Manuel de Falla and Pablo Casals, two other important Spanish composers who followed in his footsteps.

The Fall 2017 salon season will open on Wednesday, September 6th, 2017, at 7 p.m. & Sunday, September 10th, 2017, at 5 p.m. with my solo keyboard program – THE JEWELS OF THE SPANISH BAROQUE – in which I will explore some of the most exquisite Spanish-flavored sonatas by Domenico Scarlatti alongside the seldom-heard gems by Carlos Seixas and Antonio Soler. Later in the Season, don’t miss my two-part series – Sounds of Spain – with violinist, Emilie-Anne Gendron, on Sept. 20/24 & Nov. 1/5; a program of poignant and passionate Spanish Serenades with coloratura soprano, Patricia Sonego, on Oct. 14/15; a cello-piano program of dazzling Spanish Fireworks, with cellist, Ben Capps, on Oct. 28/29; a delightful collection of Danzas espanolas for piano four-hands with fellow pianist, Elena Kushnerova, on Nov. 18/19; my solo lecture-performance in tribute to Enrique Granados and His Circle on Dec. 3/6; and the magnificent Spanish Piano Trios by Granados, Turina, Halffter, and Casado with violinist, Eric Silberger, and cellist, Ben Capps, to cap off the Season on Dec. 17/20. To preview the complete Fall 2017 salon calendar and to purchase tickets, scroll down below.

Looking forward to seeing you all at these one-of-a-kind salons in tribute to Granados and his circle!

Enjoy the Fall,

Dr. Yelena Grinberg, founder and the artistic director of Grinberg Classical Salon Series
