Jorge Grundman’s father, Henri Grundman, a German by birth, emigrated to New York in 1938 and, as a New York citizen, obtained American nationality and met Ana Isla, whom he married at St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
In this way, the city of New York becomes for Jorge Grundman not only the home that welcomed his parents, his older brother, and his nephew but also the place where some of the most important scenes of his life are created, that would be permanently reflected in his musical work and in countless compositions inspired by the city and its inhabitants.
result of his numerous walks around New York City, Jorge Grundman composed the
cycle of four sonatas for flute and piano “The Warhol’s Four Seasons of New York”
to which the two sonatas that can be heard at Carnegie Hall belong.
