“A formidable improviser who lives in the moment.” That’s how JazzTimes describes Boston native Laszlo Gardony, a pianist who’s performed all across the globe. In fact, he’s hosted concerts in nearly 30 countries over his career, releasing more than a dozen albums during that time. So you won’t want to miss the Solo Piano Concert by Laszlo Gardony when he returns to Boston this month.
He’ll be taking the stage at the Longy School of Music on Saturday, September 17th at 7 p.m. Grab your ticket online ($20) and show up a little early to grab a good seat before the performance. You’ll get a sneak peek of his 14th studio album, “Close Connection,” which is set to be released later this fall as Gardony tickles the ivories. Due to his penchant for improvisation, each of his concerts is totally unique—and this one will be no exception! Gardony pulls from international music, incorporating elements from French and Italian composers, to create pieces that pay homage to music’s history while allowing for spontaneity in the present day.
