The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Glenn Korff School of Music presents An American Musical Mosaic (from Ragtime, Stride Piano, Blues and Boogie Woogie, to Broadway and Hollywood) on February 18, 2020 at 7:30 pm at the Sheldon Museum of Art, Ethel S. Abbott Auditorium. Duo pianists Stephanie Trick and Paolo Alderighi will delight the audience with favorites by Duke Ellington, Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, “Fats” Waller and selections from Bernstein’s West Side Story. The Trick-Alderighi piano duo has performed in a variety of venues, including the Gilmore Keyboard Festival, Jazz at Filoli, the Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix, the Kobe Jazz Street Festival in Japan, the London Jazz Festival, the Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival, the Ascona Jazz Festival in Switzerland, the Silkeborg Riverboat Jazz Festival in Denmark, the Bohém Ragtime & Jazz Festival in Hungary, Teatro Dal Verme Milano, Jazzland in Vienna, Jazz Bistro in Toronto, and other jazz clubs.

Pioneers in the use of four-hands piano in jazz, the husband-and-wife duo of Stephanie Trick and Paolo Alderighi have earned widespread success with their arrangements of classics from the stride piano, ragtime, and boogie woogie repertoires, as well as from the swing era and the Great American Songbook. They have performed across the United States, Europe, and Japan, winning the acclaim of critics and fans alike. Blending impeccable technique and mature musicality with humor and showmanship, they are considered the most engaging piano duo dedicated to the repertoire of classic jazz.

Free and open to the public.
