Gilmore International Keyboard Festival

Wednesdays, 11am

Program Website: n/a

Presented biennially and based in Kalamazoo, Michigan, the Irving S. Gilmore International Keyboard Festival is internationally recognized as North America’s finest piano music festival.
Now in its 22nd year, nearly 100 events showcase some of the most notable and accomplished pianists and keyboardists in the world alongside artists just emerging on the international stage.
From classical to jazz, orchestra concerts to solo recitals, and chamber music to musical theater, the Festival continually achieves acclaim for presenting performances of the highest artistic caliber.
This 13-part radio series focuses on classical music at the 2012 Gilmore Festival, featuring artists such as Richard Goode, Emmanuel Ax, Peter Serkin and Gilmore Artist Kirill Gerstein as well as rising stars Vanessa Perez, Christian Sands and Gilmore Young Artists Conrad Tao and George Li. Exclusive interviews, at-the-piano demonstrations, and on-site recordings give a behind-the-scenes look at the artists' approach to their craft as well as exactly what it takes to put on one of the world's most magnificent music festivals.
