David Golub

American pianist and conductor David Golub was born in Chicago on 22 March 1950. He studied at Juilliard with Beveridge Webster, then began a series of chamber music partnerships with musicians such as Leonard Rose and Isaac Stern. With Stern he received attention internationally as the first major Western musicians to tour China after the cultural revolution.

Later he was a member of the high profile Golub-Kaplan-Carr Trio with Mark Kaplan and Colin Carr.

He also worked as a soloist, recording Gershwin's Concerto in F and Rhapsody in Blue with the London Symphony Orchestra, and later turned to conducting, working with the Padua Chamber Orchestra, and the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra.
