Pianist


If you love the music of J.S. Bach, listen to his Brandenburg Concertos in a way you’ve never heard before. Pianist Eleonor Bindman, praised by The New York Times for her “impressive clarity of purpose and a full grasp of the music’s spirit,” performs selections from her impressive piano 4-hand arrangement of the Brandenburg Concertos with host Debra Lew Harder. 

Alexander Bui was described in 2010 by America's Got Talent judge Piers Morgan as "the most naturally talented person" they'd heard all year.  Now embarking on a solo career, the pianist performed LIVE from the WRTI 90.1 Performance Studio and chatted with WRTI's Susan Lewis on Tuesday, July 17th.

Jean-Yves Thibaudet has made a name for himself on the global classical music scene as a concert pianist with artistry and flare. He’ll be adding that panache to upcoming performances of Leonard Bernstein’s Symphony No. 2, "The Age of Anxiety," in Hamburg, Vienna, Tel Aviv, and Jerusalem when he travels with the Philadelphia Orchestra on its tour of Europe and Israel.


Thinking about the legacy of jazz pianist Bill Evans, you might be surprised to know that some cool cats named Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel, Igor Stravinsky, Arnold Schoenberg, and—especially—Johann Sebastian Bach helped shape his sound.
