The Grinberg Classical Salon Series features intimate and enlightening home salon concerts, and has presented renowned artists such as pianists Jerome Lowenthal, Oxana Yablonskaya, and Madeline Bruser, clarinetist Julian Milkis, mandolinist Joyce Balint, and NYU Professor of Music Dr. Michael Beckerman.

On Wednesday, April 17, Dr. Grinberg performs with violinist Emilie-Anne Gendron (above right), in an enchanting musical evening entitled Russian Reflections II (a sequel to Russian Reflections I, continuing a series started earlier in the year), featuring some of the most beautiful masterworks by Tchaikovsky (Serenade melancolique, op. 26 (1875); Humoreske, op. 10 (1870)), Rachmaninoff (Romance in D minor from 2 Morceaux de salon, op. 6 (1893)), Glazunov (Meditation in D Major for violin and piano, op. 32 (1891)), Mednter (Violin Sonata No. 1 in B minor, op. 21 (1909-10)), and Stravinsky (Divertimento for violin and piano (1932)). This kaleidoscopic violin-piano program of Russian Reflections II is not to be missed!

I met Dr. Yelena Grinberg (above left) over 10 years ago at ballroom dance classes that I was taking, and we have been friends since. Born in Moscow, Dr. Grinberg began her professional piano studies at the tender age of five. In 1992, she came to the US and enrolled in The Juilliard School’s Pre-College Division. As a student of the prestigious Barnard-Columbia-Juilliard dual-degree program, she graduated from Barnard College at Columbia University summa cum laude, and as a member of Phi Beta Kappa, with a degree in English Literature and a minor in Philosophy. She went on to complete both her Masters and Doctorate degrees in Piano Performance at Juilliard.

Note: this is a ticketed event; no refunds after Wednesday, April 10. Also, the food served after the performance will be light fare and is not meant to be a meal, please do not arrive hungry at this event.
