Aron Goldin is a British pianist who brings a wealth of experience performing art-song with many of the finest singers of his generation. He has been praised for his technical flair and artistry at the keyboard, as well as his fresh and imaginative interpretation of music and text across a wide range of repertoire. Opera Today described him as “an eloquent and responsive” pianist, who “beautifully shapes melody” and “provides nuanced drama” in his performances.
Aron has performed at Wigmore Hall, Holywell Music Room, the Elgar Concert Hall, Leeds Lieder, Leeds International Concert Series, Oxford Lieder and on BBC Radio 3. In 2022, he performed in the Royal Academy’s Bicentenary Song Circle at Wigmore Hall and was appointed an Oxford Lieder Young Artist for 2022-24.
Aron enjoys devising original art-song programmes around striking themes, in particular using classical music to shine a light on global humanitarian issues. His concert of Homelands, with singers Mary Bevan and Ian Bostridge, and actor Sir Simon Russell Beale, combined art-song with performances of poetry to raise funds for Afghan schoolgirls fleeing as refugees from Kabul. Other humanitarian initiatives include an upcoming concert raising funds to help children and adolescents in Southern Africa living with HIV/Aids.
Aron trained as a pianist at the Royal Academy of Music under the tutelage of Malcolm Martineau, James Baillieu and Michael Dussek. Whilst at the Royal Academy, Aron was the recipient of four Principal Scholarships, graduating with the Royal Academy’s prestigious Advanced Diploma, a Professional Diploma and Masters in Piano Accompaniment – with Distinction – as well as an honorary Diploma of the Royal Academy. During this time, he appeared in numerous masterclasses with pianists Helmut Deutsch, Hartmut Höll, Iain Burnside, and Sholto Kynoch; with vocalists Dame Sarah Connolly, Christian Gerhaher, Lucy Crowe, and Brindley Sherratt; and shared a platform with artists including Patricia Petibon and Susan Manoff.
Prior to his studies at the Royal Academy, Aron read English Literature at Trinity College, Cambridge, where he was a Senior Scholar and graduated with the top Double First in his year. In addition to his work as a musician, Aron is a screenwriter and novelist. He has written film scripts and television drama for film studios, television networks and production companies in the UK, USA and Europe. His debut novel was bought by UK publisher Pushkin Press in a two-book deal and will be published in Autumn 2024. He is represented as a writer by the literary agency Curtis Brown.
In Spring 2024, Aron will record his second album with renowned South African soprano Masabane Cecilia Rangwanasha, at Abbey Road Studios in London.
