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

The venue was a good choice since it was convenient, had good acoustics...continued
