AN AFTERNOON OF MUSIC WITH PAUL LEVI & CATHY WALDMAN
Many thanks to Northwest Neighbors Village for telling us about this program.
Join us for an afternoon of piano duets with Cathy Waldman and Paul Levi!
Where: Levine School of Music, Lang Hall — 2801 Upton Street NW
When: Sunday March 3rd, 2 PM, to be followed by a reception.
Cathy Waldman and Paul Levi recently joined Northwest Neighbors Village as Supporting Members and volunteers. As a husband-and-wife piano duo, they will perform a short concert of selections by tango composer Astor Piazzolla, as well as Prokofiev, Bach, and a new piece by Paul himself. Paul has arranged all the works in this program for piano duo. It is safe to say that you’ve never heard or seen anything like this!
About Cathy and Paul:
Cathy is a Juilliard-trained pianist. She has appeared as chamber music pianist and composer in the U.S., and throughout Europe, Israel, and South Africa. Paul holds a doctoral degree in composition from Juilliard. His music has been performed in major concert halls in the U.S. and abroad and has been recorded on major labels by first-class performers. Paul has experience in sound studios, films and television work, in musical theater, and instrumental ensembles. Paul composed PBS’s signature tune, which most of us remember from the 1970s and early 80s.
The married duo’s overlapping skills are sure to entertain us all. Cathy enjoys improvisation while Paul composes with a comedian’s sense of timing. Levi writes, “I think of my music as a gift to a community consisting of the composer, the performers, and the listener.” The New York Times describes Paul’s music as "uninhibited emotional expression... skillful instrumentation".
