In a long-overdue return to Zellerbach Hall, Cal Performances welcomes Murray Perahia, an exceptional artist who for decades has defined the essence of the great piano virtuoso. Now at the peak of his powers, this beloved and respected performer "may be the closest thing to a pure conduit of music—one in which the imagination and skill of the player are entirely at the service of the composer, not the player's ego...The soul of a poet, the mind of a thinker, the hands of a virtuoso: No wonder audiences love this guy" (Seattle Times).
