Now, more than ever, Agustín Anievas stands alone. His few peers having long ago faded into retirement, the virtuoso pianist continues to play brilliantly, his technique as enviable as ever, his passion magically undiminished since the days when Time praised his "rhapsodic, deeply felt musical vision." One of the greatest American pianists alive, the man whom The New York Times called "the lion of the keyboard" comes to Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts to play Schubert, Beethoven and Chopin. Hear live some of the very pieces Anievas recorded for EMI -- albums which are now considered to be among the treasures of American classical music. See the event description for more details about the astonishing program of this sure-to-be memorable concert. Learn More

This dance production combined the classic and comtemporary with a holiday flair that was magical. If you want Christmas Ballet but are weary of the Nutcracker, this is a wonderful alternative. The classic and contemporary music was matched beautifully with each dance. It was mesmerising to watch these excellent dancers make such athletic and artistic movements look effortless. I kept thinking how hard each of them has to work to give us that illusion. I highly recommend experiencing this performance.
