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.
Performances in recent and upcoming seasons include appearances at the Rockefeller Concerts and Peoples’ Symphony Concerts in New York, the University of Chicago, Philadelphia Chamber Music Society, Interlochen Center for the Arts in Michigan, New Orleans Friends of Chamber Music, Chamber Music in Yellow Springs, Dame Myra Hess Memorial Concerts, the Schubert Club International Artist Series in St. Paul, and at the Rose Theatre in Lincoln Center. 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 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. 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. Mr. Goldstein’s past appearances include performances at Carnegie Hall, with the Chicago Symphony at Ravinia, on the Indianapolis Symphony's Prokofiev festival, as well as international engagements with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France. He has appeared at the Gilmore, Tanglewood, Ravinia, Marlboro, and Seattle festivals in the United States. Internationally, he has performed at Prussia Cove, the Verbier Festival, and Klavier Festival in Rühr. Within the past two seasons, Mr. Goldstein has recorded three new CDs on the Naxos label.
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 performances with the Orquesta Sinfonica Nacional, Abilene Philharmonic, Bellingham Symphony, Lubbock Symphony, Auburn Symphony (CA), and Fargo-Moorhead Symphony; 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. Peled is founder of the Amit Peled Cello Gang, a touring group composed of students from his studio at the Peabody Institute, and conductor and artistic director of the Mount Vernon Virtuosi, a chamber orchestra dedicated to launching the careers of recently graduated students. He is a founding member of the Tempest Trio and Goldstein-Peled-Fiterstein Trio. Peled lives in Baltimore and performs on an 1800 Thomas Dodd cello. From 2012 to 2018, Peled performed on the Pablo Casals 1733 Goffriller cello. For more information, visit www.amitpeled.com.
