About me

 

Pianist GILA GOLDSTEIN who is known as a versatile musician has captivated audiences around the world with her unique artistry and soulful interpretations. Her playing has often been described as profound, electrifying and sensual.

Gila has performed as a solo artist and a collaborative pianist throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Philippines, Europe and Israel. Among her most notable engagements were performances at Merkin Concert Hall and Steinway Hall in New York City, the Purcell Room at the South Bank Center in London, Konzerthaus in Berlin, Progetto Martha Argerich in Lugano, Switzerland, Musée de Louvre in Paris, Pallacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City, Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto, OpusFest in Manila, Kennedy Center in Washington DC, Old First Church & Temple Emanu-El in San Francisco, College of Notre Dame in Baltimore, University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Gardner Museum in Boston, the Myra Hess concert series, the Ravinia "Rising Stars" Series & Symphony Hall in Chicago, "Great Performances" series in St. Louis, Jewish Music Festival in Pittsburgh, Henry Crown Hall in Jerusalem and the Tel-Aviv Museum.

A Board member of the  American Liszt Society (ALS) and the Founder-President of its NY/NJ Chapter since 1992, Gila is a frequent guest performer at the ALS annual festivals and at the Great Romantics International Festival in Hamilton, Ontario.

A champion of the music of Israel's leading composer Paul Ben-Haim (1897-1984) in the past decade, as a performer and recording artist, Gila has recorded two volumes of his works on the Centaur label  Piano Works by Paul Ben-Haim  (released in June 2001) and  Ben-Haim, 2nd Volume: Piano and Chamber Works  (released in November 2005). These recordings received rave reviews in major publications worldwide. They mark a significant addition to the few commercial releases of Israeli classical music and therefore meaningful for the understanding of this genre and for increasing its international recognition. These are also an important contribution to the discography of 20th century piano and chamber music literature in general. 

She holds a Master of Music from the  Manhattan School of Music where she studied with Mrs. Nina Svetlanova and a Bachelor of Music from the Tel-Aviv University's Academy of Music where her teacher was Prof. Victor Derevianko.

Gila resides in New York City, and is a member of the piano faculty at Boston University's School of Music,  http://www.bu.edu/cfa/music
