Bach to the Future: Classical and Jazz Piano with Piano Artist Alexander Wu


April 20, 2013

Program Locations:

Yamaha Piano Artist, Alexander A. Wu has established himself as an eclectic performer, equally at home in both the classical and jazz worlds as with his new CD, Bach to the Future: Classical & Jazz Piano. This innovative program breaks down the boundaries between the two genres and takes the listener on a global music experience from the last three centuries. He masterfully remixes the piano classics by juxtaposing the music of Europe’s old world traditions and influences, with the new world and America’s modern era. Mr. Wu’s highly entertaining performance, with narratives at his live concerts, compare and contrast the classic styles by the 18th and 19th century European masters with its reinvention by the 20th century American jazz icons.
