Chick Corea Trilogy @ The Music Center at Strathmore

“The three have an uncanny connection, filling space with gorgeous and subtle phrasings, gliding through all manner of styles with a seemingly effortless elegance, grace, and freshness.” – AllMusic.com

It doesn’t get more “A-list” than this! Jazz piano legend, NEA Jazz Master, and 22-time Grammy-winner Chick Corea takes the stage in an evening of near-telepathic interplay with two of the music’s most elite Gen-X masters: the mind-boggling bass virtuoso and six-time Grammy-winner Christian McBride and Brian Blade, “one of those rare jazz drummers artistically powerful enough to direct the sound of a whole ensemble” (New York Times). Reigniting the chemistry of their namesake 2013 disc, the Trilogy deliver up-to-the minute takes on the Great American Songbook, Corea originals, and more.

Midori, violin and Jean-Yves Thibaudet, piano @ The Music Center at Strathmore

Two of today’s most celebrated artists unite for a celebration 250 years in the making.

Violin superstar Midori and “master colorist and . . . great communicator” (Seattle Times) Jean-Yves Thibaudet team up for their first Washington Performing Arts appearances in more than a decade to commemorate Beethoven’s 250th birthday year. Anchored by the exhilarating “Kreutzer,” which, in the Washington Post’s words, “[has drawn] more out of Midori than mere virtuosity,” the all-Beethoven recital promises to reveal how even mainstays of the canon can reveal fresh nuances and kindle powerful emotions in the hands of two master performers.

This performance is made possible through the generous support of the Dallas Morse Coors Foundation.

“His sound can be pure gold, and he voices chords with a clarity that you have to hear to believe.” – The Washington Post

In the more than 40 years he has been performing, pianist Murray Perahia has left audiences around the world breathless. Recognized worldwide as a musician of rare musical sensitivity, the Grammy Award-winner has been dubbed “one of the piano’s most lyrical contemporary poets” by the Times (London).

Emanuel Ax, piano @ The Music Center at Strathmore

“Strong on bravura, ravishing in finesse, and flinging himself into the work with glee” – The Guardian

Emanuel Ax—the beloved American pianist who has been a fixture of the piano world since his 1974 win at the first Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Competition—is no stranger to Washington Performing Arts audiences, having appeared in recent years in collaborative performances with the likes of Yo-Yo Ma, Itzhak Perlman, and others. He returns this season for his first solo Washington Performing Arts recital in ten years, performing an all-Beethoven program showcasing his “thoughtful, lyrical, lustrous” playing (Washington Post).

This performance is made possible through the generous support of Betsy and Robert Feinberg.
