The New York Salon Drinks, Music and More…
The New York Salon invites you to an end of year get together, post Thanksgiving and pre Christmas, where, with a spectacular backdrop, we can enjoy a for a relaxed evening of conversation, music (at 8.00pm) and stunning views of the city and, as ever, think and discuss (and probably argue a little!) about not only what has happened, but also where we might be headed.
We are extremely fortunate to have the extremely talented Ben Breen who is generously performing a number of chamber style pieces for us. Recognized as one of Australia’s outstanding violinists, Benjamin made his New York recital debut at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall. He has since toured in Australia, Europe, the United States and Japan, receiving critical acclaim both as soloist with orchestra, in recital and as chamber musician.
Or, in the words of Fanfare magazine, regarding his recording of Brahms with Milton Kaye, “Breen has a tone of such vibrancy and warmth it makes you want to cuddle……this becomes one of the top Brahms sonata discs on the market… I cannot praise the playing of this duo too highly…Very highly recommended”
