Dear Friends!

I am thrilled to be hosting the 7th year – and 14th Season! – of the Grinberg Classical Salon Series on New York’s Upper West Side, reviving the old and elegant European tradition of Hausmusik.

There are and always will be a thousand princes but there is only one Beethoven,” said Beethoven of himself. Indeed, Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827) was one of the greatest giants and geniuses of all time whose immortal Music continues to enrich our lives to this very day, gripping for its raw emotionality, energetic rhythmic drive, bold innovation, extraordinary beauty, philosophical profundity, wit and humor.

Forthcoming in 2021, don’t miss a yearlong series of one-of-a-kind salons in belated celebration of the 250th birthday of Ludwig van Beethoven and the composers in his close circle, including works by J. S. Bach, Handel, C.P.E. Bach, Haydn, Mozart, Clementi, Hummel, Weber, Kuhlau, Czerny, Schubert, Fanny Mendelssohn, Louise Farrenc, Felix Mendelssohn, Schumann, Brahms, Bruch, Saint-Saens, Strauss, and others.

Looking forward to seeing you all for the grand celebration of Ludwig van Beethoven!!!

Warmest wishes for a healthy and happy New Year,

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