Rags, Blues and All That Jazz
December 5 @ 3:00 pm
This piano lecture recital features Dr. Peter Muir, a versatile international pianist, conductor, educator and musicologist. He possesses an impressively broad repertoire embracing blues, ragtime and classical. The New York Times described his talent as “potent” and Newsday praised his “terrific” performances.
Rags, Blues and All That Jazz is an exploration of these 3 styles of American music, tracing their emergence, development and interrelationship between 1890 – 1939. A recital that combines virtuosity and musicality in equal measure and which is held together by a compelling narrative.
As we approach the holiday season in these unusual times, we invite you to join us in this unique ZOOM performance.
