Kenneth Grigg, piano, performs a spectacular concert in an intimate setting. Mr. Grigg's unusual style emphasizes fluid virtuosity, beauty and variety of tone, and the aesthetic and emotional response of each listener in his audience.|
"Etude," literally "study" in French, summons thoughts of exercises such as Czerny, Hanon, Sevcik, and other pedagogical staples. Etudes by great composers, however, are for virtuosi with finished techniques, and are everything but teaching pieces. Join us for twenty-three amazing artworks you'd never associate with the word "study."
