Dear Friends!

This Winter / Spring 2024 Season, I am thrilled to be hosting the 12th 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 – in celebration of some of the greatest Czech-born composers, including Hummel, Czerny, Moscheles, Smetana, Dvorak, Suk, Janacek, Martinu, and Schulhoff. The Season will include both beloved masterworks, including Dvorak’s Dumky Trio, Smetana’s Vltava in the evocative piano four-hands arrangement, Janacek’s Pohadka for cello and piano as well as rarely-heard masterworks, such as Ignaz Moscheles’s epic Cello Sonata in E Major, Dvorak’s pastoral Violin Sonata in F Major, and Martinu’s exuberant Trio for flute, cello and piano.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Warmest wishes for a healthy and happy New Year,

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