Violinist Jeffrey Multer has been recognized worldwide for his passionate performances, extraordinary depth of musical understanding and brilliant technique. A native of upstate New York, Mr. Multer made his Kennedy Center debut in 1993 and since that time he has appeared in recital, as a soloist with orchestra and as a chamber musician throughout north and south America, Europe and Asia. This year marks his sixth season as artistic director of chamber music at the Eastern Music Festival in North Carolina. Praised for his dynamic and accessible programming style, Mr. Multer has been appointed this season as artistic director of the newly formed Palladium Chamber Players in St. Petersburg, Florida. Prior chamber music positions include the Oxford Quartet where at age 28 he was appointed first violinist. In 2001 he was asked to join the critically acclaimed Elements Quartet, whose New York series was named Best Classical Music Event of 2003 by The Washington Post. Mr. Multer has performed numerous times at Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, Weill Hall, Merkin Hall and the National Gallery in Washington, DC. Recently he has appeared at the Mozarteum in Salzburg and the Rudolphinium in Prague, with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, with the Theater Chamber Players of the Kennedy Center and with the Smithsonian Chamber Players.

This season in addition to his busy concert schedule Mr. Multer made his debut at the Casal's festival in San Juan, Puerto Rico. In May he will be one of the few U.S. artists to travel to Cuba where he will be appearing as soloist and conductor with the Cuban National Orchestra in Havana. Mr. Multer was appointed concertmaster to the Florida Orchestra in 2006 where he currently holds the Suzette and Monroe Berkman chair. In addition to his post with The Florida Orchestra, Multer currently serves as concertmaster at the Eastern Music Festival in Greensboro, North Carolina. Past concertmaster appointments include the Colorado Symphony, Breckenridge Music Institute in Colorado, Washington Concert Opera, and Echternacht Festival in Luxembourg.

Piano Masterclass with Steven Lubin

Steven Lubin has emerged as an international concert artist of exceptional distinction with his concerto appearances and recitals on both modern and period pianos. As a modern pianist, one of his recently completed tours brought him to Ukraine and then back to the U.S. with the Odessa Philharmonic Orchestra. He was featured in Prokofiev’s Concerto no. 1 in performances characterized, according to a critic’s description, by “a spirit of fresh adventure.” In the past few years he has performed in Vienna’s Musikverein, Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, France’s Colmar Festival, Germany’s Tage alter Music Festival, in a tour of seven Spanish cities, and in many cities in North America. During his 30-year career, he has performed in the major halls of North America and Europe and has made 20 recordings for major labels, many of which have been cited for special distinction by Gramophone, Stereo Review, the Penguin Guide, The New Fork Times, Diapason, Alte Musik aktuell, Geijutsu, and other definitive journals around the world. Mr. Lubin’s European performances include solo appearances at the Barbican Center, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Wigmore Hall, and St. John’s Smith Square in London, the Festival de la Roque d’Antheron in France, the Utrecht Festival in Holland, the Espoo Festival in Finland, and the Sala dei Giganti in Padua. Across North America, he has appeared frequently at the Mostly Mozart Festival, at the Kennedy Center, the Ravinia Festival, Davies and Herbst Halls in San Francisco, Meyerson Hall in Dallas, Severance Hall in Cleveland, and the Ambassador Theater in Los Angeles, among many others. Recent North American appearances include performances in Texas, South Dakota, Indianapolis, Philadelphia, San Diego, Washington, D.C., in the Schubertiade of the 92nd Street Y in New York, and in the Caramoor Festival; in Canada at the Vancouver Early Music Festival, and in Calgary as both solo performer and juror in the Esther Honens International Piano Competition. He has appeared as soloist with the National Symphony Orchestra, the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, and the Mozarteum Orchestra of Salzburg, to name just a few. As an early musician Mr. Lubin has been a dominating figure for more than two decades. He was the first, among the leaders of the current early-music movement in America, to launch a series of solo recitals including fortepiano in major New York venues (including his 1977 debut in Carnegie Recital Hall), and, having organized a classic-period orchestra in the early ’80s, was the first to perform Mozart concertos in period style, as soloist/conductor, in New York’s principal halls (Avery Fisher Hall, Alice Tully Hall, Town Hall, and the Metropolitan Museum). His ground-breaking recordings of several Mozart concertos for Arabesque served as an introduction for many listeners worldwide to period-style performance of this repertoire. These recordings garnered widespread critical praise, including a recording-of-the-year citation from Stereo Review magazine, and earned Mr. Lubin a European reputation. Mr. Lubin’s role in 1985 as one of the principal soloists in the British TV series “Man and Music” further heightened an international awareness of his work. He was chosen by the producer Peter Wadland of Decca to record the five piano concertos of Beethoven with Christopher Hogwood and the Academy of Ancient Music, a recording cited as definitive by many critics internationally. In 1978 Steven Lubin founded The Mozartean Players, a chamber ensemble devoted to period performance, and has toured widely as a chamber musician as well. As exclusive artists for Harmonia Mundi USA, the Mozartean Players recently released a series of critically praised recordings, including the complete piano trios of Mozart and Schubert. The Mozartean Players also presented a five-year series of multiple concerts at New York’s Metropolitan Museum. Mr. Lubin studied with Lisa Grad, Nadia Reisenberg, Seymour Lipkin, Rosina Lhevinne, and Beveridge Webster. He majored in philosophy as an undergraduate at Harvard, received his master’s degree in piano from Juilliard, and earned a Ph.D. in musicology from New York University. He is known as well for his frequent lectures and numerous writings on musical subjects. He has lectured under such auspices as those of the American Musicological Society, Lincoln Center, the Aspen Festival, the Juilliard School, Fermilab, and several major universities.
