We music lovers were all born 200 years too late. In the 19th century, small groups of friends and family would gather in the parlor for a private musical performance and spirited conversation. It was a special era in arts history, but slowly faded away as recorded music rose to prominence, followed by radio, television, Internet, iPads… We’ve gotten farther and farther away from that one-on-one, emotional connection with the music.
For one extraordinary evening, noted pianist and composer Robert DeGaetano will let you experience the lost tradition of parlor music. Join him in his midtown studio for an intimate concert. You’ll witness a true master and the majesty of a Hamburg Steinway Grand. It’s the power of the concert hall in a small, private setting. Robert is eager to answer your questions about the selections played—both breathtaking classics and delightful originals. You won’t just hear; you’ll feel: that unbreakable bond between musician and music, between music and you.
Light soft drinks will be available. Guests will be asked to turn off their cellphones and other electronic devices. This SideTour needs a minimum of 4 tickets sold to take place.
