Grinberg Classical Salon Series

Dear Friends!

I am thrilled to be hosting the 6th year – and 11th Season! – of the Grinberg Classical Salon Series on New York’s Upper West Side, reviving the old and elegant European tradition of Hausmusik.

This Summer, don’t miss three one-of-a-kind salons:

1. On Sunday, July 28th, at 5 p.m. and Wednesday, July 31st, at 7 p.m., join me and the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra mandolinist, Joyce Balint, for MAGICAL MANDOLIN II – a special sequel to last summer’s Magical Mandolin I, featuring gorgeous Baroque jewels by Vivaldi, Bach, Telemann, Handel, and Scarlatti, alongside poignant masterworks by J. C. Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Grieg, and Calace;

2. On Sunday, August 25th, at 5 p.m., I will be joining terrific young bassoonist, Remy Taghavi, for a special tribute to the BRILLIANT BASSOON, including Vivaldi’s joyous Bassoon Concerto in F Major, Telemann’s wistful Bassoon Sonata in F minor, Mozart’s sublime, one-and-only Bassoon Concerto in B-flat Major, Saint-Saens’s pastoral Sonata for bassoon and piano, Ravel’s alluring Piece en forme de Habanera, Dutilleux’s Sarabande et cortege for bassoon and piano, inspired by the French Impressionism of Debussy and Ravel, and Boutry’s delightfully jazzy Interferences for bassoon and piano; 

3. On Wednesday, August 28th, at 7 p.m., don’t miss the magnificent MUSIC FOR CLARINET, BASSOON, AND PIANO, featuring Beethoven’s fiery Piano Trio in B-flat Major, op. 11 in the seldom-heard instrumentation for piano, clarinet, and bassoon and Glinka’s amorous Trio Pathetique in D minor for clarinet, bassoon, and piano, alongside Saint-Saens’ Neo-Classical Sonata for bassoon and piano, Schumann’s whimsical Fantasiestucke for clarinet and piano, and Poulenc’s avant-garde Sonata for clarinet and bassoon.

Looking forward to seeing you at these not-to-be-missed salons!!!

Wishing you a fabulous summer,

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