Russian performers present some “Irish Air”

on Saint Patrick’s Day

TOMS RIVER – More than just Irish eyes were smiling on March 17, St. Patrick’s Day, during a musical program by flutist Inna Gilmore and pianist Elizaveta Kopelman at Ocean County Library headquarters.

The two award-winning Russian performers presented a concert called “Irish Air” that evening that featured some popular Irish tunes.

Gilmore’s professional debut as a concerto soloist took place in Moscow at Tchaikovsky Philharmonic Hall at the Moscow Autumn Music Festival in 1995, which was broadcast on National TV.

As an orchestral player she worked as a member of the Concert Orchestra of Radio and Television in Moscow. She is a recipient of the Artists International Special Presentation Award. She gave her New York debut at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall in 2008.

Her other awards included prizes in the Haynes International Flute Competition in Boston, the Classical Heritage International Competition in Moscow and the Russian National Competition of Woodwinds in St. Petersburg.

She has been performing actively as a solo recitalist with her husband, pianist Brian Gilmore. She is a Haynes flute artist.

She continued her professional flute studies in America with Loren Lind of the Philadelphia Orchestra and later had additional study with Paula Robison at the New England Conservatory in Boston.

Elizaveta Kopelman was born into a musical family in Moscow.  She started her studies at the Central Music School with Dina Parachina.

She continued her studies with Arnaldo Cohen after moving to England and attended the Royal Northern College in Manchester. She won numerous and awards, including the Young Concert Artists Trust Competition in London.

She has appeared as a soloist throughout the United Kingdom, Europe, the U.S. and South America, with appearances at the Wigmore Hall, Barbican Centre, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Royal Festival Hall, Alice Tully Hall and Bridgewater Hall.

Kopelman has performed with such orchestras as the Iceland Symphony Orchestra, London Chamber Orchestra, the London Philharmonic, and the New York Chamber Symphony. She recently appeared at the Carnegie/Weill Hall, Salle Cortot in Paris, the Dubai Arts Centre and the Geneva Conservatoire.

While some audience members may have expected an Irish brogue from the performers, no one was disappointed in their rendition of such Irish favorites as “Danny Boy.”

The pair also performed a touching musical number from the soundtrack of the 1983 TV mini-series “The Thorn Birds.” The mini-series was a popular Australian based drama starring Richard Chamberlain, Rachel Ward and Barbara Stanwyck.

Shazia Zaman, who serves as a senior librarian, in the OCL Adult Programming Information Services Department said the program had a registration of around 135 people. She said despite the morning snow storm, Mancini Hall was packed that evening with people waiting to enjoy some traditional Irish music that night.

Patrons were able to purchase CDs by the musicians following their concert.
