Spoleto (2 of 8)

Tonight’s presentation was at the Simons Art Center at the College of Charleston.  The performer was  Leszek Mozdzer who is a jazz pianist  with the fastest hands I have ever seen.  He was excellent and played a lot of inventive and unusual compositions.  What I liked was how he put objects on the piano strings such as books, drinking glasses, pushed towels under the string stops.  The objects totally changed the sound of the piano and gave it a synthesizer effect.  Very good.
