The Man I Love

"The Man I Love" by Julian and Leon Fleisher

When not mashing together the standard and contemporary American songbooks, Julian Fleisher can often be found on the lecture circuit laughing it up with his father— the legendary pianist Leon Fleisher. Customarily, Julian leads audiences on a tour of his father's extraordinary musical consciousness and career. For this talk, they flip the script. No chatting about the profound importance of The Composer's intent and the tradition of German piano music. Tonight, Julian brings his pops to popular music as they reimagine the moments and melodies that bridge father and son. In short, dad’s downtown, there’s a piano and Julian’s making arrangements.

“The Man I Love” holds 50 people and will be held at The Library at the Public. This talk is free, though there is a suggested one-drink minimum to help offset our costs.
