Called “genre-defying… An original, often iconoclastic thinker equipped with a leonine technique” by the Chicago Tribune, pianist Anthony Molinaro is a formidable figure in both classical music and jazz. Having composed many original genre-crossing compositions, he returns to PianoForte for a performance and discussion about his CD Here, There and Everywhere as well as his upcoming appearance at the International Beethoven Festival.
Program will include:
Anthony Molinaro: Canto Per Mio Padre
Claude Debussy: Clair De Lune
Johannes Brahms: Intermezzo, Op. 118 No. 2
Sergei Rachmaninoff -arr. Anthony Molinaro: Andante from Sonata for Cello and Piano
And selections from Anthony’s forthcoming album exploring music of The Beatles, “Here, There and Everywhere”
