avril 10 @ 7:30 - 9:30$USD17
Two grand pianos face each other… classical music and jazz merge in a burst of virtuosity! A team unlike any other, electrifying duo-duel pianists Matt Herskowitz and John Roney tackle some of the most beloved classical piano masterpieces in the spirit of the great interpreters, enhancing their renditions with improvised variations worthy of the best jazz players. Blessed with total technical command, each musician is capable of remarkable keyboard prowess while expressing himself in a deeply musical way. Every concert is like an emotional roller coaster that can soar from quiet hushes to ecstatic peaks of intensity in one fell swoop. From the opening downbeat to the show stopping finale, these partners are in total synch with each other, sometimes in perfect harmony, elsewhere testing their wits to surprise both themselves and their listeners. Spectators can also get in on the action, with closeup camera shots of each player projected on a large stage screen. The two pianists will perform a selection of pieces from Bach, Chopin, Beethoven, Grieg, Schumann, Rachmaninov, George Gershwin and D. Brubeck.
