Keyboard Fans: we’ve got you covered!

April showers brings….lots of phenomenal pianists to stages all around New York.

First off, there’s “In Visible Roads”, co-hosted by Metropolis Ensemble & BLUEPRINTS Piano Series. This brand-new innovative festival brings together top-notch pianists from both the classical and jazz disciplines, paired with other instrumentalists and composers. The result is a bouquet of eclectic programs with a stimulating array of music. The series is already underway, and April performances include RighteousGIRLS (Gina Izzo, flute & Erika Dohi, piano) performing selections that make use of multi-track layering and improvisation (April 2), Lisa Moore, one of the best contemporary classical pianists in existence (April 11), Aaron Diehl, one of the most versatile jazz pianists around (April 17), and several other intriguing programs. All of the performances are at Metropolis’s space on Rivington Street in lower Manhattan. Tickets available at Metropolis’s website and at the door.

And then, there are the Big Names Not To Be Missed. There’s a veritable parade of superstars, just at Carnegie Hall alone. Yefim Bronfman (April 4), Maurizio Pollini (April 7), and Mitsuko Uchida (April 30) each perform recitals of much-beloved repertoire. Uchida’s all-Schubert program is especially swoon-worthy. The French pianist Hélène Grimaud performs Ravel’s Piano Concerto with Orchestra of St. Luke’s on April 18, and the indominatable Yuja Wang collaborates with cellist Gautier Capuçon in music by Franck and Rachmaninoff on April 10. In a partnership that has to be the supreme match of the past several decades, violinist Itzhak Perlman and pianist Evgeny Kissin join forces to play Beethoven’s “Kreutzer” Sonata along with favorites by Mozart and Brahms.

You might be tempted to pitch a tent and stay at Carnegie for the entire month. But then you would miss Piotr Anderszewski playing Beethoven’s “Diabelli” variations at Alice Tully Hall on April 2, Garrick Ohlsson at The 92nd Street Y on April 28 and Peter Serkin in an all-Brahms recital at Town Hall on the People’s Symphony series, also on April 28.

Capping off this month’s concert recommendations, two ensembles from English-speaking countries abroad at Lincoln Center: Australian Chamber Orchestra on April 9, and London Symphony Orchestra on April 14 and 15. You really cannot go wrong with either of these “A-list” groups.
