Add to Calendar 10-04-2014 10-04-2014 15 The Life & Music of Dave Brubeck Over the course of nearly 92 extraordinary years, more than 70 of them spent as a professional musician, Dave Brubeck (1920-2012) studied with the composer Darius Milhaud; served his country in World War II; recorded nearly 100 albums as a leader, including the two-million-selling record Time Out; and wrote several hundred songs for a series of quartets. Brubeck spread jazz's message around the world from the mid-'50s until not long before his death. He experimented with unorthodox time signatures, polytonality, and extended formats (composing operas, oratorios, chorales, ballets, sacred music, and suites) in a manner that bespoke continued artistic growth, and performed frequently as a solo pianist, showcasing his individualistic style. In 2000, Brubeck founded the Brubeck Institute at the University of the Pacific, his alma mater, to which he devoted much loving care, and which now carries on his legacy as an artist committed to impacting society through the arts and catalyzing social change. The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis explores Brubeck's legacy with fresh arrangements that illuminate the maestro's breadth and scope. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=135929 Jazz at Lincoln Center true DD/MM/YYYY
