Jeffrey Goldberg, piano
Jeffrey Goldberg's mentors include Luise Vosgerchian, Sarah Benson,
Leonard Bernstein, Ivan Tcherepnin and Joe Maneri. His improvisations
have been featured in concerts and festivals throughout Europe and
North America, including Palau de la Musica Catalana, the Darmstadt
Festival of Contemporary Music, and the Frankfurt Jazzkeller. His
compositions range from music used for sound healing to two
commissions by the Hannover Opera: an electronic ballet on the life of
Marlene Dietrich; and an opera that set a Wagnerian libretto to
klezmer music, and featured the first use of rap on a German opera
stage. He collaborated with Yo-Yo Ma and Bobby McFerrin in the film
"Yo-Yo Ma at Tanglewood," and has been a piano soloist with the Boston
Symphony Orchestra and the Boston Pops. Dr. Goldberg has served as
music-director for several Boston-area theatres (including Gloucester
Stage Company, the Sugan Company, the Nora Theatre), and as a vocal
coach/conductor with the State Operas of Hannover, Darmstadt, and
Chemnitz. He has served on the faculties of Harvard, Boston Arts
Academy, The Rivers School Conservatory, and New England Conservatory
of Music (Preparatory School/Continuing Education).
