For its final concert of the 2013-2014 season, Le Petit Salon de Musique welcomes an international quintet of award-winning musicians led by Israeli pianist Guy Slapak. The members of Guy Slapak and Friends met during advanced studies at Stony Brook University, and on April 13, 2014 at 2 p.m., they will perform pieces from Rachmaninov, Scriabin, Debussy, and Schubert to make a fitting end to Le Petit Salon’s fourth season.
Pianist Guy Slapak was raised in Israel and studied at the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance. Only 26 years old, he has already earned numerous awards, including 2nd Prize in the Jerusalem Academy’s 2011 concerto competition, 2nd place in the 2009 chamber music competition of the Jerusalem Academy, and the Distinguished-Pianist Award at the 2005 Ibla-Grand Prize Competition. Percussionist and double bassist Tomoya Aomori frequently performs as a percussionist with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and has appeared at Carnegie Hall with the Met Chamber Ensemble. As a double bassist, he won the International Society of Bassists Young Bassist Competition in 2003. Aomori is married to cellist Julia MinJeong Kang, a versatile musician with a growing career as a soloist for orchestras such as the Seoul Pops Orchestra and the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra. Growing up in Korea, Jaram Kim, the quintet’s violinist, came to the United States to study at Julliard, where she later won the Juilliard Concerto Competition. The final member of the group is violist Mujan Hosseinzadeh, who grew up in Tehran and graduated from the Tehran Conservatory of Music. She has since studied at the Florence Conservatory of Music, the Manhattan School of Music and at Stony Brook University.
Le Petit Salon de Musique’s 2013-2014 season, its fourth, has been its most successful so far, and we’re proud to end the season on such a high note with five amazingly talented and accomplished musicians playing some of the most beautiful music ever written.
About Le Petit Salon de Musique
Welcome to "Le Petit Salon de Musique", a place where you can enjoy exceptional music in a lovely, intimate setting at a very reasonable price.
Here's what some of our guests have said about Le Petit Salon concerts:
"Le Petit Salon de Musique continues to provide outstanding programs featuring truly accomplished musicians. The intimacy of the setting, and the virtuosity of the performers, make it a unique experience for people who truly love good music. We have been attending since the Salon's inception, re-arranging our own busy schedules whenever necessary in order not to miss a single concert." Susan and Paul Glatzer
"On December 18, 2011 we attended the concert at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship which featured Alexandria and Friends. It was our first concert at the Fellowship. We experienced one of the most exciting, enjoyable and musically competent concerts we have attended in many years. Alexandria Lee's piano performance was professional, beautiful and electrifying. The individual soloists on the violin, cello, viola and flute displayed outstanding competency. The finale quartet was nothing more than breathtaking. We look forward to attending future concerts." Deanna and Ted Schwartzman
"The concerts are absolutely superb. The performers are first rate and the venue is great. Keep it up!" George
"I've attended two of the concerts, and have to say that I was amazed at their professionalism. The music is wonderful and the atmosphere cozy. I could listen to the string quartet every week-they were magnificent!" Diana
"I just wanted to say that I was so glad I made it to the concert (just in the nick of time!!) because the performance was absolutely wonderful. I commented to another that I wouldn't be surprised if people somewhere, in other venues, etc., pay up to 10 times what we did yesterday to hear such a concert (Clueri Quartet). It was just amazing. Thank you for continuing to bring us such talented artists, at an irresistibly affordable price." Carol Castillo
