Later this summer, jazz legend Dave Brubeck has two gigs with the Boston Pops at Symphony Hall and then it's down to the Blue Note in NYC for three shows - and that's just the first two weeks of June!
In December, Brubeck celebrates his 90th birthday. Amazing.
50 years ago, Brubeck wrote some music for the American Ballet Theatre. Points on Jazz is a ballet suite for two pianos - a set of rhythmic variations on an earlier work that was inspired by the composer's visit to the Chopin Museum in Warsaw.
Tonight's (12:05am, Thursday) Euro-Classic comes from Rome. It's a performance recorded live last October with the Bostonian brothers Anthony and Joseph Paratore (and two pianos!).
