Alon Goldstein
Alon Goldstein is one of the most original and sensitive artists of his generation, admired for his musical intelligence and dynamic personality. Alon’s artistic vision and innovative programming have made him a favorite with audiences and critics alike throughout the United States, Europe, and Israel. He made his orchestral debut at the age of 18 with the Israel Philharmonic under the baton of Zubin Mehta, and in April of 2008 returned with Maestro Herbert Blomstedt in Beethoven Concerto No. 1. In recent seasons Mr. Goldstein has performed with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra, the San Francisco, Baltimore, St. Louis, Houston, Vancouver, Kansas City and North Carolina Symphonies, the Rhode Island Philharmonic, and orchestras on tour in Pais, Russia, Romania and Bulgaria.\

 

He opened his 2013-2014 season at the Ravinia Festival as soloist with the Chicago Symphony in the Mozart Double Concerto, K. 365 with Katherine Jacobson Fleisher as well as in the Triple Concerto, K. 242 with Leon Fleisher and Ms. Jacobson Fleisher.  A few months earlier, he appeared at the Ruhr Piano Festival performing the Britten Diversions with Mr. Fleisher conducting.  The current season will include orchestral performances of the Britten, Beethoven Concertos No. 1, 2 and 4, Mozart K. 466 and Tchaikovsky No. 2 in re-engagements with the Kansas City Symphony, Jerusalem Symphony and Rhode Island Philharmonic, among others. In the fall of 2013, Mr. Goldstein will release a recording of Mendelssohn Concertos Nos. 1 and 2 with the Israel Chamber Orchestra conducted by Yoav Talmi.

 

During his 2012-13 season, Mr. Goldstein scored a major success on a 17-concert Latin American tour with the Israel Chamber Orchestra; a collaboration that earned them a return tour in 2015-16.  Highlights of the season included his debut with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and performances with the Tokyo Quartet on their final tour. In addition to performances of Liszt, Rachmaninoff, Shostakovich, Mendelssohn and Tchaikovsky concertos, Mr. Goldstein’s busy schedule included nation-wide performances with the Goldstein-Peled-Fiterstein Trio, and solo recitals, many of which included the music of Debussy in homage of the composer’s 150th birthday.

 

Mr. Goldstein’s recent seasons included his successful debut with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Vladimir Jurowski playing Mendelssohn Concerto No. 1, a return to the IRIS Orchestra for Saint-Saëns Concerto No. 2 with Michael Stern, Tchaikovsky Concerto No. 1 with Jaime Laredo and the Vermont Symphony, and Avner Dorman’s Lost Souls with the Santa Barbara Symphony under Nir Kabaretti. He also performed in Paris with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France with Leon Fleisher conducting. Among his recital and chamber music concerts were critically-acclaimed performances in Beijing, Guatemala City, Kent, Chicago, Los Angeles, Coral Gables, Seattle, St. Paul, Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.

 

Other highlights have included his Carnegie Hall debut in the Mozart Triple Concerto with Joseph Kalichstein and Shai Wosner, as well as performing two world premieres: the aforementioned Lost Souls piano concerto written for him by rising star Israeli composer Avner Dorman with the Kansas City Symphony and music director Michael Stern, and a concerto by Mark Kopytman with Avner Biron and the Jerusalem Camerata Orchestra.
