Goldstein-Peled-Fiterstein Trio

February 9, 2020

Bound by their Israeli roots, pianist Alon Goldstein, cellist Amit Peled, and clarinetist Alex Fiterstein formed the Goldstein-Peled-Fiterstein Trio in 2005. Their performances reflect the virtuosity and infectious musicality 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 Interlochen Center for the Arts in Michigan, Peoples’ Symphony Concerts in New York, the University of Chicago, Philadelphia Chamber Music Society, New Orleans Friends of Chamber Music, Concerts International, Dame Myra Hess Memorial Concerts, the Schubert Club International Artist Series in St. Paul, Pro Musica Joplin, the Saint Cloud Chamber Music Society, 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.”

From 2011-2013 they served as the Juilliard Graduate Resident String Quartet, and for the 2014-2015 season they were selected as the Quartet in Residence by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
