Stephanie Trick and Paolo Alderighi are without a doubt two of the greatest exponents of classic jazz piano, specializing in the exciting sounds of ragtime, stride, swing and boogie-woogie. For this special concert, the husband-and-wife team will join forces to play a series of intricate “four hand” duets on a single piano. “I love to hear Stephanie and Paolo together,” says pianist and NEA Jazz Master Dick Hyman. “They are an inspiration. Such sympatico! Such back-and-forth! Individually they are marvelous musicians–we’ve known that, but together they play 4-handed stride as it’s never been done. Brava, bravo!”
