Israeli Pianist Alon Goldstein to

Give Lunchtime Recital at Middlebury College Nov. 6

MIDDLEBURY, Vt.—The young

Israeli pianist Alon Goldstein will give a lunchtime recital on

Monday, Nov. 6, at 12:15 p.m. in the concert hall of the Middlebury

College Center for the Arts on South Main Street (Route 30).

Goldstein will play Four Impromptus by Franz Schubert; Sonata 1, x,

1905 “From the Street” by Leos Janácek; and Four Preludes from

Claude Debussy’s second book of preludes. The recital is free

and open to the public.

Admired for his technical prowess and

his musical intelligence, Goldstein is poised to be a musical leader

of his generation. He earned his masters degree from the Peabody

Conservatory, where he worked intensively with pianist and conductor

Leon Fleisher. He has earned glowing recommendations from several

renowned conductors, including Fleisher, Claudio Abbado, and Zubin

Mehta, among others. He has participated in the Aspen, Marlboro,

Ravinia, and Tanglewood music festivals, and has performed with many

top orchestras, such as the Israeli Philharmonic and the Baltimore

Symphony. Since 1997, Goldstein has been a Performance Fellow at the

Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London.

In September, Goldstein played

Beethoven’s Fourth Piano Concerto with the St. Louis Symphony

under the direction of Peter Oundjian.

Goldstein’s recital is the part

of the “Brainerd Commons Presents” series, which is supported by the

Christian A. Johnson Foundation.

Brainerd Commons is part of the

Middlebury College commons system, which divides the campus into five

groups of dorms housing approximately 400 students each.

For more information about the

concert, please contact Jennifer Nelson, Brainerd Commons co-faculty

head, at 803-443-3321.
