Family Matinee: Michel Camilo
Explosive pianist Michel Camilo has mastered the trifecta of musical expression, blending classical music with jazz and pan-Caribbean styles, delivering spellbinding solo piano performances of standard and original works. For our final matinee of the season, Camilo showcases the musical genius of Cuban pianist/composer Ernesto Lecuona along with a lineage of artists spanning over a century, and proves once again that the piano is indeed a powerful, percussive instrument. With blurring speed and mind blowing independence, Camilo injects new life into the exquisite repertoire of one of the world’s great composers, and will surely inspire young musicians to look at the piano in a whole new way.
