    Sunday, July 28, at 3pm. On his return to the Cultural Center of Cape Cod, renowned jazz pianist and composer Laszlo Gardony will perform fresh takes on beloved pieces from the American Songbook and music from around the world as well as engaging and entertaining original compositions and improvisations. As a premiere performance for the opening of the “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” exhibition, Laszlo will include his arrangement of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and other pieces from the movie. Winner of the Great American Jazz Piano Competition, pianist/composer Laszlo Gardony has been noted for his “fluid pianism” by The New York Times, and two of his albums made DownBeat Magazine’s “Best of the Year” list. “A formidable improviser who lives in the moment” (JazzTimes), Laszlo has performed in 27 countries and released 14 albums on the Sunnyside, Antilles, and Avenue labels. He is a professor of piano at Berklee College of Music in Boston and on the Faculty at Harvard University’s “Jazz Combo Initiative” program. Laszlo is a voting member of the Recording Academy/GRAMMYs. Laszlo’s performances convey the joy of inspired creation, audience connection, and moving spontaneous improvisations. Gardony’s concerts are one-of-a-kind performances drawing from feeling, prodigious technique, and a playful curiosity that thrives on interpreting each unique moment. Gardony continues to divide his time between composing, recording, concerts, and teaching. He remains, above all, committed to living an inspired, truthful, and productive life in music. $25.
