“ A substantial proportion of my time is devoted to giving lectures, lecture-concerts, master classes, workshops, seminars, coaching sessions. Whether it be for elementary school children, conservatory students, senior citizens, or general public, it is a form of mission to share the accumulated treasures that will make a difference in people’s lives” says the International Concert pianist Jay Gottlieb on his website (http://www.jaygottliebpiano.com//).
This piano master, whose sound bites can be listened on http://www.jaygottliebpiano.com/sound-bites/, will introduce us into the New Year with amazing sounds full of knowledge, inspiration and precision.
“Jay Gottlieb is one of the best musicians I know: an unusually gifted musician, a charming, strong personality, intelligent, a real artist. I have a real affection for him. I cannot recommend him highly enough.” Said Nadia Boulanger, a French composer, conductor, and teacher.
“Jay Gottlieb: beautiful sound, dazzling technique, impressive musicianship, great program.”- Betsy Jolas, French Composer.

We’ll have a drink in a nearby bar after the concert; remember that our events are just one of those excuses we make when we want to meet other expats and make new friends.
