"The audience was rewarded with stellar playing from start to finish." — The Baltimore Sun
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.
Alon Goldstein, pianist, is 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, South America and Israel.
Israeli-American cellist, conductor, and pedagogue Amit Peled, a musician of profound artistry and charismatic stage presence, is acclaimed worldwide as one of the most exciting and virtuosic instrumentalists on the concert stage today. Highlights of Peled’s 2019-2020 season include the premiere of Joshua Bornfield’s Concerto for Cello and Choir with the Händel Choir of Baltimore; a Beethoven cycle with Alon Goldstein in Mexico; and his debut conducting the Peabody Chamber Orchestra.
Alexander Fiterstein, clarinetist, is recognized for playing that combines flawless technique and consummate musicianship with graceful phrasing and a warm, soulful tone. A recipient of the 2009 Avery Fisher Career Grant Award, Mr. Fiterstein is a first-prize winner of the Carl Nielsen International Clarinet Competition and the Young Concert Artists International Auditions.
