Daniel Abrams and Marilyn Crispell Rehearse For Tristan's Promise


Sign in to view read count
Daniel Abrams and Marilyn Crispell rehearse for the forthcoming production of ABRAMS' new play Tristan's Promise being presented by the Woodstock Guild at the historic Byrdcliffe Barn (part of America's oldest ungoing art's colony) on Friday, August 27 & Saturday, August 28th at 8pm. The play is about the interrelationship of two concert pianists and their manager (played by John Michalski) and the music performed by the two pianists, both separately and together, will range from Mozart to Wagner to improvisation, and will include a performance of Schubert's Fantasie for 4 hands. Tristan's Promise will offer the audience an intimate view into the lives of two concert performers and their manager, showing how a performing career, like life itself, promises everything but guarantees nothing. It is to a large degree based on Richard Wagner's philosophy relating to life, love and creativity. For further information, contact the Woodstock Guild at 845-679-2079.

Marilyn Crispell, a classically trained pianist, is a noted jazz improvisationalist. Daniel Abrams is an internationally acclaimed pianist & composer. These two great artists are going to make Tristan's Promise an extraordinarily exciting event.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
