Ted Rosenthal will be performing the New York City premiere of “The Survivor", a concerto he composed for jazz piano and orchestra. The performance, with the Manhattan Jazz Philharmonic (Justin DiCioccio, Conductor), takes place at 8 pm in Borden Auditorium at the Manhattan School of Music, 122nd St. and Broadway.

The concert is free and open to the public, with no tickets required.

“The Survivor" is a concerto in three movements that features the pianist in both the contemporary classical and jazz improvisational idioms. The piece incorporates the excitement and spontaneity of jazz improvisation and the jazz rhythm section within a tightly knit compositional work.

“The Survivor" draws its inspiration from the bittersweet experience of survival, alluding to survivors of personal and artistic struggles as well as survivors of great tragedies, most notably the Holocaust.

In this performance, the other members of the trio featured in the concerto are John Benitez, bass; Obed Calvaire, drums.

The program also includes a bass trombone concerto by Daniel Schnyder, with David Taylor, soloist; Dave Liebman's “The Lonliness of a Long Distance Runner," with Liebman and Phil Markowitz soloists, and “Black Sand Beach," by Mike Abene also featuring Dave Liebman.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
