Bach to the Future: An Evening of Classical and Jazz Piano

Alexander Wu
Video Catch-up

Course Description

Alexander Wu is equally at home performing classical music or jazz as he also illustrates, from his second solo CD, "Bach to the Future", the links between these musical forms with beautifully chosen comparisons of pieces by a variety of composers from Bach, Chopin and Debussy to Ellington, Gershwin and Brubeck. It's an evening of musical magic not to be missed! YouTube Concert Video Playlist - Performed at "Live! At the Norton Museum" in West Palm Beach list=PLjvqYN9439YLWqwXovybYFPCoqrbSgBNj
