Copland House at Merestead continues it's September BernsteinBash with a presentation of 2-piano and 1-piano 4-hand works by LEONARD BERNSTEIN. A dazzling pianist for whom the instrument was a kind of personal lab, Bernstein often experimented at the keyboard with new musical ideas, before transplanting and developing them into much larger works. Daredevil virtuosos John Musto and Michael Boriskin offer a view of Bernstein at the keyboard in all his brilliance. Featuring some of his beloved theatrical overtures (to the shows Wonderful Town and Candide), as well as scintillating early rarities, the program climaxes with Musto’s incendiary and widely-performed 2-piano version of the Symphonic Dances from West Side Story.
