Even though in-person concerts have been suspended, many talented artists and ensembles are committed to sharing stunning music through the internet. Here’s a guide to some upcoming classical livestreams you should add to your calendar!
WFMT is thrilled to bring you this upbeat, swinging concert livestream from pianist and composer Aaron Diehl featuring propulsive Harlem stride hits by James P. Johnson, Thomas “Fats” Waller, and Willie “the Lion” Smith, plus selections by Scott Joplin, Gershwin, and Massenet.
Ahead of the esteemed duo’s performance at UChicago Presents, Tal & Groethuysen, who first joined forces in 1985, visited WFMT for an Impromptu of piano four-hands music by Mozart, Schubert, Louis Théodore Gouvy.
Executive director Amy Iwano comments, “UChicago Presents’ 76th season welcomes world-renowned artists rarely heard in Chicago for fresh takes on masterworks and first performances of brand-new music.”
