A Program of Post-Modern Enjoyable/Accessible Music


Program:

(To Be announced)

He’s still figuring it out but with 40,000+ pieces of music at his fingertips,

He’ll find something!

In his words: “So you thought you knew the late romantic?  Well….Pianist and salon-friend, Alex doesn’t think that musical period ended with Rachmaninoff.  In fact,  by the time Alex’s favorite 1920s/30s melodies were penned, Sergei had long since stopped writing “tunes”.  And who assumed that mantle?  The songwriters of Tin Pan Alley.  Alex, charter member of URSA (Unadulterated Romantic Slobs of America) plans an hour’s worth of soaring melodies and toe-tapping syncopations, including a fantasy on the 1942 Warner Bros film, KINGS ROW, music by Erich Wolfgang Korngold, arguably the lushest of all movie scores.”
