Bound by their Israeli roots, pianist Alon Goldstein, cellist Amit Peled, and clarinetist Alex Fiterstein formed the Goldstein-Peled-Fiterstein Trio in 2005. Today, the ensemble’s performances reflect both the special gifts and originality of the three artists as soloists as well as their marvelous sense of ensemble and love of chamber music.
Past and upcoming performances include appearances at Peoples’ Symphony Concerts in New York, the Carmel Music Society, Dame Myra Hess Memorial Concerts, The Schubert Club International Artist Series in St. Paul, the Saint Cloud Chamber Music Society, Community Concerts at Second in Baltimore, the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society and at the Rose Theatre in Lincoln Center. A testament to the ensemble's musicianship and audience appeal, the Seattle Chamber Music Society commissioned a trio for them from composer Ronn Yedidia, which they premiered in 2007. This was the first ever commission for the Society which is now in it's 29th year. The New York Times praised the ensemble for displaying “the kind of spotless technique that keeps the attention focused on the score rather than the vagaries of the performance.”
Alon Goldstein, pianist, is one of the most compelling artists of his generation, admired for his musical intelligence and dynamic personality. Mr. Goldstein’s artistic vision and innovative programming have made him a favorite with audiences and critics alike throughout the United States, Europe, and Israel. In 2009 he gave the world premiere of Lost Souls, the enthusiastically received concerto written by fellow Israeli, Avner Dorman, with the Kansas City Symphony and Michael Stern. He has been hailed across the country as a superb artist and exciting soloist with such orchestras as Philadelphia, St. Louis, Los Angeles, San Francisco and many others, and as a sensitive chamber music artist.
Amit Peled, a musician of profound artistry and charismatic stage presence, is acclaimed as one of the most exciting cellists on the concert stage today. Mr. Peled, recently described by the American Record Guide as “having the flair of the young Rostropovich”, has performed as a soloist with many orchestras and in the world’s major concert halls, including: Carnegie Hall and Alice Tully Hall, New York; Salle Gaveau, Paris; Wigmore Hall, London; Konzerthaus, Berlin; and Tel Aviv's Mann Auditorium. Peled has been a frequent guest artist at prestigious festivals such as the Marlboro, Newport and Seattle Music Festivals, Heifetz International Music Institute, Schleswig Holstein and Euro Arts Festivals in Germany, Gotland Festival in Sweden, Prussia Cove Festival in England, the International Violoncello Congress in Spain, and the Kfar Blum Music Festival in Israel.
Alexander Fiterstein is one of the world's exceptional clarinet players. A recipient of the 2009 Avery Fisher Career Grant Award, first-prize winner of the Carl Nielsen International Clarinet Competition and the Young Concert Artists International Auditions, he appeared with the Orchestra of St. Luke’s at Lincoln Center, Vienna Chamber Orchestra, Polish Kammerphilharmonie, Danish National Radio Symphony Orchestra, Israel Chamber Orchestra, Jerusalem Symphony, Tokyo Philharmonic and China National Symphony Orchestra. In recital, Mr. Fiterstein has appeared at the National Gallery of Art, Kennedy Center, 92nd Street Y, Carnegie’s Weill Hall, the Louvre in Paris, and Suntory Hall in Tokyo.
