Brad Mehldau
September 30 - October 1
Rose Theater

Visionary pianist Brad Mehldau makes his long-awaited return to Rose Theater for two distinct concerts. On Friday, September 30, Mehldau will perform alongside saxophonist Joshua Redman in a showcase of one of the most celebrated pairings in contemporary jazz. On Saturday, October 1, Mehldau will treat audiences to a solo performance. An impressionistic genius, Mehldau takes a wildly diverse range of music and makes it entirely his own.
Free pre-concert discussion nightly at 7pm.

Ibrahim Maalouf
September 30 - October 1

7pm & 9:30pm
The Appel Room 
Hailed by The New York Times as a "virtuoso of the quarter-tone trumpet," Ibrahim Maalouf combines jazz improvisation and European classical influences with the sounds of his native Lebanon and home in France, creating a far-reaching blend of cultures. This concert features a stellar ensemble of Frank Woeste, Scott Colley, Rick Margitza and Clarence Penn. They will pay homage to one of the greatest Arabic singer, songwriter and film actors - Egyptian icon Oum Kalthoum - with a sprawling, one-of-a-kind interpretation of her most beloved hit "Alf Leila wa Leila." Maalouf explains, "This piece is one of the all-time classics that is celebrated across the Arab world, and yet it remains virtually unknown in the rest of the world, so this is an opportunity for me to present this symphonic masterpiece." Maalouf is an inspirational cross-cultural visionary and Kalthoum - to be performed in its entirety - is a gripping synthesis of powerful musical traditions. 
Free pre-concert discussions nightly at 6pm and 8:30pm.
