Great artists give public lectures and masterclasses at New England Conservatory—simply because they teach here.
Pianist Fred Hersch is a mainstay of the NEC jazz faculty who has brought unique demonstrations of his artistry as a solo pianist, composer, and collaborator to his Jordan Hall concerts.
A major national tour in which Hersch is performing with his trio, solo, and in duo with Julian Lage—with whom he recently released the recording Free Flying—brings him back to Boston on November 21 to perform with Lage at Scullers. As a bonus, Hersch is using his time on the ground to offer this masterclass at NEC.
Hersch opens today's masterclass by asking NEC jazz soloists, duos, and ensembles to show him their interpretations of standards.
