CONVERSATIONS WITH MY PIANO
 

Friday 6 October 7:30 pm
Casa Mexicana

Darius Brubeck and Christopher Duigan 
International  jazz pianist Darius  Brubeck can be heard in a rare offering of solo piano music. Brubeck is most often heard as the leader of the Darius Brubeck Quartet or with his brothers  playing music of their father, legendary pianist  Dave Brubeck, in Brubeck plays Brubeck.  He is joined in a musical ‘piano ping pong’ or back and forth by pianist Christopher Duigan. Duigan spontaneously plays classical and popular solos, improvisations and original material offsetting Brubeck’s
 jazz offerings in an inspired and unique gathering.  This conversational engagement  takes place with, and around, the piano.
