To our regret, we have had to postpone this event to a later date to be announced.

Escape from frozen February in New York to the glories of the French Baroque as imagined by Johann Sebastian Bach.

Cost: $20 for Full Members and Friends of Harvardwood (and their guests)
        $30 for non-members

The doors will open at 6:30 pm.  The performance will begin promptly at 7 pm.  There will be a wine and cheese reception with pianist Yelena Grinberg after the performance.

Limited to just 21 people.  Advance Registration is REQUIRED.

One of the greatest and rarest joys of music is the opportunity to hear a great musician in the intimacy of her own home. We are thrilled that Yelena Grinberg, one of New York's finest pianists, has agreed to welcome us into her home a very few times each year for a special series of intimate concerts, played on her own piano, just for us. At these concerts, Yelena will talk about and perform some of her very favorite works from her vast repertory. Yelena's living room seats just 21 people, so we strongly recommend early registration.

The two great contrasting approaches to music in Bach's day were those of France and Italy, and Bach was deeply inspired by both.  In this concert we'll hear some of his greatest masterpieces in his own personal version of the French style. The program will include Bach's French Suite #3 in B Minor, his French Suite #5 in G Major, and his magnificent French Overture.

Yelena Grinberg is a virtuoso whose playing combines strength, intellect, and passion. She has performed with the Moscow Symphony as well as at important festivals in England, Spain, France, and Switzerland. She has won major awards in numerous competitions and was the 2005 winner of the Artists International Competition. Her sold-out performance at Carnegie Hall's Weill Hall was hailed by the New York Concert Review as "a grand performance in a grand tradition."

Special thanks to Andy Goodwin and the Plymouth Hill Foundation.
