Piano Dialogues: Aaron Diehl – Preludes: Hanna & Bach, at Merkin Concert Hall
Friday November 18, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$30
2022-23 Kaufman Music Center Artist-in-Residence Aaron Diehl performs works from the 24 preludes of two masterful composers, Roland Hanna and J.S. Bach.
At once temporal and ethereal, pianist and composer Aaron Diehl transforms the piano into an orchestral vessel in the spirit of beloved predecessors Ahmad Jamal, Erroll Garner and Jelly Roll Morton. Following three critically-acclaimed leader albums on Mack Avenue Records – and live appearances at historic venues from Jazz at Lincoln Center and The Village Vanguard to the New York Philharmonic and the Philharmonie de Paris as well as a European tour with Wynton Marsalis – Diehl conjures three-dimensional expansion of melody, counterpoint and movement through time.
