TEMPEST TRIO

Combining technical mastery, expressive depth, and performance experience, pianist Alon Goldstein, violinist Ilya Kaler, and cellist Amit Peled have joined forces to form one of the most exciting trios on the international scene. Each virtuoso member of the ensemble has a successful solo career and together they bring vitality to the concert stage with their dynamic musical interplay and collaborative spirit. The Trio has been recently compared by critics to the legendary "Million Dollar Trio" of Arthur Rubinstein, Gregor Piatigorsky, and Jascha Heifetz.
