AROUND THE WORLD IN 50 MINUTES
"Around The World in 50 Minutes” is a program that visits different times and places through music. Comparing the beauty of Bach to the longing of Chopin, the showmanship of Liszt to the lyricism of Schubert, and the mystery of Debussy to the rhythms of South America, this program highlights how the opposite sounds and ideas of these composers influence and complement one another.
Program includes works by:
Bach, Beethoven, Schubert, Chopin, Liszt,
Debussy and Ginastera
BEETHOVEN: THE STORY BEHIND THE NOTES
"The Story Behind The Notes” takes audience members on a musical and historical journey guided by a Beethoven Piano Sonata. This program has an optional powerpoint presentation to accompany it.
Beethoven - Piano Sonata (separated by movements, with speaking between)
Mr. Goldstein frequently gives masterclasses to solo pianists, and also offers coachings and masterclasses for chamber music ensembles.
The music Mr. Goldstein plays or discusses is illuminated in a fascinating way by his putting it into musical and historical perspective and sharing the political and social context in which the music was written.
