Media and Current Events
Hailed by music critics worldwide as “the new Horowitz, a “poetic and pianistic wonder,” a performer with a “masterful tonal command and a romantic soul,” and a musician with a “magician‘s power” who “possesses a rare gift to hypnotize the audience from the first chords,” the US-based, award winning Israeli concert pianist Victor Goldberg has been widely considered as one of the most important artists of this generation.
Mr. Goldberg’s engagements have included such high-profile venues as Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, and the Dame Myra Hess Memorial Concerts in Chicago. Performances at some of the most respected concert halls worldwide have included the Wiener Konzerthaus in Vienna and the Oriental Arts Center in Shanghai. Mr. Goldberg‘s performances can often be heard on WQXR (New York), WFMT (Chicago), WBGH (Boston), WRCJ (Detroit), dzFE (Manila), Radio Television Hong Kong.
For his commitment to building cultural bridges by way of the piano, Mr. Goldberg was named Israel Cultural Ambassador by the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs. He is a recipient of the Artistic Mastery Award by the World Congress of Russian Jewry.
A distant relative of Vladimir Horowitz, Mr. Goldberg is a winner of the Vladimir Horowitz International Piano Competition in Kiev, Ukraine, the Artist Recognition Award at the International Keyboard Festival in New York, and the Pro Musicis International Award in New York. Mr. Goldberg is a full-scholarship recipient from the Juilliard School, the Peabody institute of Johns Hopkins University, Tel Aviv University, and the Manhattan School of Music, where he was the first pianist to ever be awarded the prestigious Artist Diploma in Performance. He currently serves as an executive professor at the Online Academy for Classical Music of Lions Club Vienna MozART, and is the Artistic Director of Key Vive Arts Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting charitable causes by using the power of music to enrich the human spirit and to bring people closer to one another.
