Dear Friends,

Welcome to the Grinberg Classical Salon Series!

I am delighted to host the intimate and enlightening series of Classical music salons on the Upper West Side (NYC), in reviving the great old European tradition of Hausmusik, followed by an elegant food-and-wine reception with the guest artists. I believe these salons offer a truly  unique, enriching, and inspiring musical experience to the community on the Upper West Side and beyond.

For the upcoming Winter / Spring 2016 season, I invite you to the Winter-Season opening salon on Saturday, January 16th, 2016, at 4 p.m. & Sunday, January 17th 2016, at 5 p.m., in which I will be joined by the excellent violinist Keiko Tokunaga and cellist Hamilton Berry in an impassioned piano trio program in celebration of 225th birthday of Carl Czerny (1791-1857) – the famous pupil of Beethoven and the teacher of Franz Liszt – featuring Czerny’s brilliant and seldom-heard Grand Duo in A Major, paired alongside Beethoven’s electrifying “Ghost” Trio and Schubert’s sublime Trio No. 1 in B-flat Major. Speaking of teachers and pupils, I am greatly looking forward to my four-hand piano salon with my own beloved piano teacher and world-renowned pianist, Oxana Yablonskaya, on Saturday, March 26th, 2016 – stay tuned for program details! I will also be presenting and performing with my other extraordinary colleagues, including violinist Emilie-Anne Gendron, flutist Jesse Han, clarinetist Anton Rist, violist Kenny Wang, guitarist Arthur Kampela, and soprano Patricia Sonego. For the complete lineup of the Winter / Spring 2016 salon calendar, see below. Each salon program is unique and NOT to be missed!!!

I look forward to seeing you all there!

Best wishes for 2016,

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