Liana Forest and her Swinging Symphonette

Show Highlights from Russian-born concert pianist Liana Forest. Accompanied by her Swinging Symphonette (acoustic bass, drums, reeds, trumpet, trombone), this production merges her virtuoso classical background with the pop and jazz styles, bringing to the stage fresh and original interpretations of revered classical works. From Chopin and Rachmaninoff to modern renditions of Bach and the tuneful gusto of Bernsten’s West Side Story.
