“Roberts stands as one of the most imposing pianists of the under-50 generation, his encyclopedic knowledge of jazz-piano history matched by a formidable technique and a keen ear for instrumental color.” – Chicago Tribune
“[The Boulder Philharmonic is] a symphony of top-notch, talented professionals, easily clinching their hard-earned spot as one of the best professional orchestras in the state.” – ourcommunitynow.com
Eminent jazz pianist Marcus Roberts and his trio add a stunning new dimension to Gershwin’s famous Concerto in F. Inspired by a suggestion from conductor Seiji Ozawa, Roberts and the trio have presented their unique re-imagining of Gershwin with orchestras around the world, including the Berlin Philharmonic. Opening the program is Gershwin’s vivid travelogue, An American in Paris, that inspired the film of the same name.
