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 collaborative pianist throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, 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, Kennedy Center in Washington DC, Old First Church in San Francisco, College of Notre Dame in Baltimore, University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, University of Evansville in Indiana, Gardner Museum in Boston, Dame Myra Hess concert, the Ravinia Rising Stars Series and Symphony Hall in Chicago, Great Performances series in St. Louis, Musée de Louvre in Paris, Pallacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City, Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto, 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 (Canada). 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 entire piano works and three chamber works on the Centaur label: Piano Works of Paul Ben-Haim, (released in June 2001) and Paul Ben-Haim, Volume 2: Piano and Chamber Works (released in November 2005). Among the rave reviews the recordings have received worldwide, the American Record Guide wrote: Goldstein is a charismatic performer who plays with great flair, delicate nuances, fluid tempi and brilliance . PIANIST magazine in London wrote: “Goldstein proved two things: that Ben-Haim’ s neglect was thoroughly undeserved and that she has a technique as fierce and fiery as the color of her hair”. These recordings mark a significant addition to the few commercial releases of Israeli classical music, in particular piano music, and therefore meaningful for the understanding of this genre and for increasing its international recognition. They are also an important addition to 20th century’s recordings of piano and chamber music in general. Gila Goldstein 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.
