Do you think that you have heard every interpretation of Beethoven’s music? How about jazz improvisations on Beethoven’s “Moonlight” and “Waldstein” sonatas? That is what Marcus Roberts will perform at this extraordinary concert, alongside variations on Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story and On the Town. A rare and remarkable way of thinking about and hearing two disruptors in their own right. 

"Pianist Marcus Roberts is known for many things: a genius skill that makes him the logical successor to Thelonious Monk's wild style (with a lot of Fats Waller in his stride), an immense love of the blues, technological innovations in regard to composing for the blind, and a soulful sense of tradition and invention." (Philadelphia Inquirer)
