Myron Silberstein

Myron Silberstein

Recently acclaimed by Paul Snook of Fanfare as “a deeply adventurous and accomplished pianist” and by Aaron Hunt of NewCity Stage as an “expert accompanist … with a rich knowledge of the standard operatic repertoire”, Myron Silberstein first came to prominence in 1991 upon winning the Giornate Musicali International Piano Competition in Sperlonga, Italy. Silberstein’s full-length European debut followed in 1992. His 1993 recital at Weill Recital Hall of Carnegie Hall attracted the attention of Connoisseur Society Records, for which he recorded works by Franck, Bloch, and Giannini in 1994. This recording was cited by critic Peter J. Rabinowitz as the best debut recording of the year.  Silberstein has served as staff accompanist for the annual Classical Singer Magazine Convention since 2009, was resident music director of Chicago Opera Vanguard from 2009 to 2011, and was nominated for a Jeff Award in music direction in 2011. He is currently the General Manager of VOX 3 Collective, for which he also serves as an accompanist, and is a studio accompanist at North Park University. Myron Silberstein’s compositions have been premiered by eminent soloists such as Patricia Morehead (oboe) and Susan Nigro (contrabassoon), while his musical theatre works have been produced by Piccolo Theatre and Storycatchers Theatre. A lifelong advocate of underrepresented repertoire, Silberstein’s recording of solo piano works of Peter Mennin and Norman Lloyd was released on Naxos’s American Classics series in May 2014 and was hailed by Mark Lehman of The American Record Guide as “an indispensable addition to the discography of American music.” His first volume of recordings of Vincent Persichetti’s piano works was completed in August 2015. In his spare time, Myron Silberstein writes fiction and learns dead languages.
