Ludwig Van Beethoven is one of the greatest composers of all time. His music lives in the heart of people in all corners of the world, elevating our spirits and giving rise to our better selves.

About Itay Goren:

Itay Goren has performed solo concerts in Europe, Asia, the Pacific and the United States. His recitals at the Ateneo de Madrid, Palffy Palace in Prague, The American Cathedral and Scots Kirk in Paris, and numerous halls in NYC were greeted with high acclaim. Following his performance at the Festival de Cámera in Villaviciosa de Odon in Spain, a review of the festival signaled out his concert as being “especially emotional”. Other notable festival appearances include the Pacific Summer Music Festival in Guam, The American Music Festival in France, the Hindemithon Festival in New Jersey and the International Choral Festival in the Czech Republic.

Originally from Haifa, Itay Goren studied music at the Rimon School of Music in Tel Aviv before continuing his education at William Paterson University in New Jersey, USA. Under the guidance of pianist Elka Kirkpatrick, Itay graduated with degrees in both classical and jazz performance and received many honors and awards from the University. He is currently on the faculty of the music program at Ramapo College of New Jersey.

As a lover of chamber music, Itay is sought after by many ensembles and soloists. He enjoys a wonderful chemistry with his frequent collaborators, the Madison String Quartet and the Gabriel Chamber Ensemble. In recent seasons he performed at concerts dedicated to the music of Bartók, Schumann, Villa-Lobos, Brahms, Mozart and Beethoven.

Itay Goren was soloist with orchestras in Beethoven’s 4th Piano Concerto and Chorale Fantasy and Liszt’s Eb major Piano Concerto as well as Mozart’s concertos No. 20 and 14 and Bach’s F minor Concerto which he also conducted from the keyboard. His latest concerto appearances include a stunning performance of Brahms’ 1st Piano Concerto at Drew University with the Central Jersey Symphony Orchestra, and a triumphant rendition of Rachmaninoff 2nd Piano Concerto with the Summit Symphony.

Itay is also a champion of contemporary music. He has performed works by living composers David Winkler, Richard Sorce and Randall Svane, who wrote and dedicated a new Piano Sonata to Itay, who will premiere it this season.
