In what promises to be an evening of musical surprises, jazz piano prodigy Beka Gochiashvili shares the bill with guest artist, acclaimed violinist, and fellow Georgian Lisa Batiashvili. Called "an old soul in a very young body" by famed drummer Lenny White, the 20-year-old Gochiashvili has already performed with Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke, and other American jazz greats in his short career. Batiashvili, who was named Musical America’s 2015 Instrumentalist of the Year and has won praise for her interpretations of the Romantic and late-Romantic repertoire with major orchestras around the world, is equally at home in 21st-century music and has frequently collaborated with contemporary composers.
