Gershwin Piano Favorites—Shelly Berg with Santiago Rodriguez

October 23, 2011 @ 4:00 PM
UM Maurice Gusman Concert Hall

Dean’s Festival Concert
Shelly Berg, piano
Santiago Rodriguez, piano

Frost School Dean Shelly Berg and faculty artist Santiago Rodriguez pair up for an all-Gershwin piano extravaganza. The program includes two-piano versions of Cuban Overture (with percussion); the Three Preludes and I Got Rhythm Variations; Grainger’s Fantasy on Porgy and Bess; and Gershwin standards arranged by Paul Posnak. The concert closes with Gershwin’s own two-piano version of Rhapsody in Blue accompanied by a rarely performed 1926 chamber orchestra orchestration. If you’re crazy for Gershwin, you’ll love this concert!
