Artist: Russell Sherman (Piano)

Great artists give free concerts at New England Conservatory—simply because they teach here.

Pianist Russell Sherman, NEC Distinguished Artist-in-Residence, celebrates his 85th birthday (today is the actual birthday) and the 70th anniversary of his professional debut at Town Hall, with an all Beethoven recital.

Sherman has recorded Beethoven's complete piano sonatas and piano concertos for GM Records. He performed the "Appassionata" sonata at his Town Hall debut.
