Dear Friends!

Forthcoming this 2022-2023 Season, I am thrilled to be hosting the 10th year (!) of the Grinberg Classical Salon Series on New York’s Upper West Side – a one-of-a-kind salon concerts in revival of the old and elegant European tradition of Hausmusik. This year’s salons are in tribute to Franz Schubert’s 225th birthday…. as well as in celebration of the 200th birthday of Cesar Franck! 


The moment is supreme,” said Franz Schubert (1797-1828) – an Aquarian Genius who composed over 600 works in his tragically brief life of just 31 years, including many lieder, seven complete symphonies, sacred music, operas, incidental music and a large body of piano and chamber music. During Schubert’s lifetime, the popular so-called Schubertiads were informal literary-musical salons held at private homes which were devoted to Schubert’s music.
This year, don’t miss one-of-a-kind thematic salons inspired by Schubertiads in celebration of the 225th birthday of Franz Schubert and the composers who influenced him and followed in his footsteps, including works by Bach, Handel, C.P.E. Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Hummel, Weber, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Schumann, Chopin, Franck, Brahms, Saint-Saens, Dvorak, Grieg, Janacek, Messiaen, and Kreisler.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

…and wishing you all a fun and fabulous Summer,

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