Australian Piano Music

Pianist Edward Neeman performs this evening in Princeton in a concert that features "Highlights from a century of Australian piano music," including his own Variations on "I Got Rhythm." For those of us irrepressibly driven toward music we've never heard before, the event is a must-hear. And yet, I will not be there to hear it. So I'm asking anyone who reads this to go and tell me what you think: 7:30 p.m. at Looking Glass Pond, 800 Alexander Road, Princeton. Admission is $15. For more information call 609-720-0098 or email

The program:

  • Roy Agnew: Sonata Ballade (1939)
  • Richard Meale: Coruscations (1971)
  • Larry Sitsky: Sharagan, Fantasia No. 5 (1984)
  • Edward Neeman: Variations on "I Got Rhythm" (2006)
  • Alistair Noble: glasteppich i (2008)
  • Carl Vine: Sonata No. 1 (1990)

This program will be repeated in New York City 8 p.m. Thursday, May 14 at the Gershwin Hotel, 7 East 27th St. at Fifth Avenue. Admission is $10. For more information for that recital call 212-545-8000.
