Aron Goldin (2014-16) is preparing to release his debut album as a pianist next month.
The album of art-song around the theme of exile, titled ‘Homelands’, was produced by Grammy-winning producer Simon Kiln and will be released on 27 October by record label, Rubicon Classics.
In the album, Aron accompanies an ensemble of singers, featuring tenor Ian Bostridge.
“The album grew out of a concert I gave with Ian and actor, Sir Simon Russell Beale, which raised over £200,000 to help evacuate over 450 Afghan schoolgirls who were fleeing persecution from Kabul, to a new life in Canada,” Aron said.
“As such there is a wonderful story and spirit behind the album.”
Since graduating from St Paul’s School in 2016, Aron has studied English Literature at Trinity College Cambridge, where he was a Senior Scholar. He then went on to train as a pianist at London’s Royal Academy of Music, where he studied under the tutelage of Malcolm Martineau, James Baillieu and Michael Dussek, and gained a Masters in Piano Accompaniment, Professional Diploma, and Advanced Diploma with Distinction.
He has also performed at venues all over the UK, including London’s Wigmore Hall and Leeds International Concert Series.
He has also been commissioned as a screenwriter to write scripts for a number of film and television studios, including Universal Studios, and his debut novel was bought in a two-book deal to be published in September 2024.
