Pianists Alon Goldstein, John Orlando and Soprano Solmaaz Adeli
Alon Goldstein, the pianist of the Tempest Trio, is one of the most
original and sensitive pianists of his generation, admired for his
musical intelligence, dynamic personality, artistic vision and
innovative programming. His orchestral debut took place when he was 18
with the Israel Philharmonic under Maestro Zubin Mehta; in April of
2008, he returned with Maestro Herbert Blomstedt. Since then, Maestro
Goldstein has performed in Los Angeles, Philadelphia, San Francisco,
Baltimore, St. Louis, Houston, Vancouver and Kansas City. Abroad,
Maestro Goldstein has collaborated with orchestras in Paris, Russia,
Romania and Bulgaria.
During his 2012-13 season, Maestro Goldstein had toured Central and
South America with the Israel Chamber Orchestra under the baton of
respected conductor Yoav Talmi, giving highly acclaimed series of
sixteen concerts that featured Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 2 and
Mendelssohn’s Piano Concerto No. 1. Other concerts include his debut
with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra – featuring Tchaikovsky’s Piano
Concerto No. 2 – and his performance with the Tokyo String Quartet in
its final season of concerts.
Maestro Goldstein’s most recent debuts include his Carnegie Hall
appearance in the Mozart Triple Concerto with Joseph Kalichstein and
Shai Wosner, his successful performance with the London Philharmonic
Orchestra and Vladimir Jurowski, and playing with the Orchestre
Philharmonique de Radio France, conducted by Leon Fleisher. His recital
and chamber music concerts in Beijing, Guatemala City, Kent (UK),
Chicago, Jerusalem, and Tel Aviv were all highly acclaimed.

These records follow three immensely successful installments, “The
Jewish Soul,” “Cellobration,” and “Reflections.” As an active chamber
musician, Peled is a founding member of the famed Tempest Trio with
