John Pizzarelli at the Boston Pops

5/12/2009 03:12:00 AM
Remember my interview with Keith Lockhart from last week (here). And how he mentioned that he was looking forward to collaborating with John Pizzarelli again? Well the time has come:

Jazz guitarist John Pizzarelli will be performing with the Pops tomorrow and Wednesday nights. Also, acclaimed cellist Maya Beiser will join the Pops and perform the world premiere of a suite by James Newton Howard, based on his film score of M. Night Shyamalan’s movie The Village and the Boston premiere of Exodus. Both of these should be very erie and interesting in Symphony Hall. Also, she's going to perform an electric cello solo of Led Zepplin's Kashmir.

I have a special place in my heart for cellists. I went to opening night last week and heard Tony Rymer (winner of the 2009 Sphinx Competition) play and realized I apparently was never any good at the cello. I thought I was, but I was wrong. Anyway, I digress - Maya Beiser's performance will probably be amazing.

    Cannot wait. Been a Beiser fan since the Bang On a Can days. She is simply amazing no other words can describe her (other than the New Yorker's "cello Goddess" - cannot trump that:)
    Going to tomorrow's perf.
