Lilya Zilberstein

Three for the price of one! For two decades the Moscow-born Lilya Zilberstein has earned a reputation as one of the world’s most fabulously gifted artists, winning prestigious international competitions, appearing as featured soloist with the Berlin Philharmonic, London Symphony, and Montreal Symphony, among others, and making critically acclaimed recordings for EMI and Deutsche Grammophon. A longtime favorite of Civic Music and Peninsula Music Festival audiences, she’ll return to perform music by Rachmaninov, Schubert, Mozart, and Brahms.

Making this an extra-special evening for Civic Music subscribers, she’ll be accompanied by a pair of rising young talents – her sons Daniel, 20, and Anton, 15, making their American concert debut! Already performing professionally as the Duo Gerzenberg, they have been featured in concert with the Taipei Symphony Orchestra, and Daniel won first prize in the Steinway Competition in Hamburg. Lilya Zilberstein is represented by Schmidt Artists International, Inc.

* This concert opens a two-night dual engagement in partnership with the Green Bay Symphony Orchestra. Civic Music members are eligible for a reduced-rate ticket of $20 for Saturday night’s Symphony concert, also at Holter Auditorium, with Ms. Zilberstein as featured soloist on Dimitri Shostakovich’s Concerto for Piano, Trumpet and Strings. The program also includes music of Bach, Mozart and Copland. Designate this additional purchase, if desired, on your membership order form.
