Stylish, imaginative and fun, Peter Nero plays piano “…with the energy of a 20-year-old rock and roll drummer,” noted the Palm Beach Daily News in 2008. “His Juilliard training shows in the cleanliness of his technique and in his control of the tone of the piano. His technical arsenal includes brilliant passage work, rapid bass lines, arpeggio-like figures ascending and descending, and subtle dynamic variations. His fast playing is thrilling, and his slow playing is marked by a beautiful lyricism.” Mr. Nero is hailed as one of the premier interpreters of Gershwin. In this solo concert, the two-time Grammy Award winner will perform such beloved songs as “Embraceable You,” “Rhapsody in Blue,” “Someone to Watch Over Me,” “S’Wonderful,” and “They Can’t Take That Away.” "Eclectic and Iconoclastic, he gives a performance filled with wry wit and musical brilliance." —New York Post
