Keith Eisenbrey plays Benjamin Boretz

In celebration of the upcoming 90th birthday of my teacher, friend, collaborator, editor, provocateur, sometime landord, and closest among the virtual symposium of my senior colleagues, Benjamin Boretz, I will perform a generous selection of his works for solo piano, including (“…my chart shines high where the blue milks upset…”), the piece that grabbed hold of me at our first encounter back in about 1979, dragged me across the continent for two years of study, and which has permeated my thinking about music ever since. It promises to be an evening of deeply thoughtful intensity, nearly 50 years in preparation. I earnestly hope to see you there.
