Pianist with the Hair: Live from Paris or Somewhere in Europe
July 19, 2020 | 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm
This special Facebook Live performance is scheduled in conjunction with the planned appearance by Julian Gargiulo as part of An Appalachian Summer Festival’s 2021 season.
Where in the world is Julian Gargiulo? Originally scheduled to perform live from his Parisian flat, Julian finds himself country-hopping at the moment and could wind up in Athens, Verona, or another exotic European locale, where he’ll locate a piano and entertain us with his incomparable artistry, charming wit and distinctive mane.
Steinway artist Julian Gargiulo, commonly referred to as “Pianist with the Hair” because of his distinctive look, is a renowned classical pianist and composer, who performs all over the world, in prestigious venues from New York’s Carnegie Hall to Singapore’s Symphony Stage, and has been featured on radio and TV in North America, Europe, and Asia. A classically trained pianist, Julian captivates his audience not only with his technical precision but also with his Woody Allen-ish wit. Julian invites his audience to abandon all preconceived notions about classical concerts. On stage he presents a program that includes classical standards, Tango transcriptions, and his own compositions. In between pieces, he engages the audience by sharing his personal stories, anecdotes from the lives of composers, and his home remedies for jet-lag.
