"The qualities that make Perahia one of today's leading artists of the keyboard lie in his ability to shine a penetrating and personal light on such music, in such a way that there is nothing at all 'standard' about it."

Chicago Tribune

Murray Perahia, piano

The program will feature works by Bach, Beethoven, and Chopin.

Myra Melford Jazz Platform
A revered elder statesman who plumbs the depths of Classical and Romantic repertoire with exquisite refinement and magisterial grace, Murray Perahia is among the most exalted pianists of his generation. His recitals are often transformative experiences, as the reviews for a recent Bay Area performance attest: "powerful and revelatory, as astounding a concert as I've attended in recent memory...it appeared as though the entire history of music was being unraveled right before us" (The Mercury News).
