The Great Music on Sundays @5 concert series presents the 21st season of 18 weekly concerts from June 9 through October 6 at the Unitarian Universalist Meeting House of Provincetown (236 Commercial Street, 508.487.9344)
September 22: GEORGE GERSHWIN: RHAPSODY IN BLUE
Paul Bisaccia piano
Bisaccia is the first person in history to record all of the solo piano music of Gershwin, whose arrangements of his own compositions are legendary. For this special concert, he will perform Gershwin standards and favorites and the rarely played original solo piano version of Rhapsody in Blue. The American Record Guide notes, “For Gershwin interpretations Bisaccia wins hands down.” Michael Feinstein has praised Bisaccia’s “consummate musicianship”. The concert features a simultaneous live widescreen projection of the pianist’s hands as they use all 88 keys of the Steinway grand piano.
