Up next to get us going for summer we have composer-pianist Rob Schwimmer. At his concert at Streamside Rob’s concert may contain his stunning originals, the Great American Songbook, jazz, Americana, and even Bernard Herrmann’s stunning Scene d’Amour from Hitchcock’s Vertigo. Classical, the avant-garde and the unclassifiable (with palate cleansing miniatures as a small bite of sonic ginger) may also be represented filtered through Schwimmer’s deeply personal, unique, and (sometimes) virtuosic vision of the sound world. The New York Times praises Rob for his “Virtuosity, magic, and humor” while Gramophone called his music, “…ravishing and dazzling.” He has worked with Simon and Garfunkel,Wayne Shorter, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Bobby McFerrin, Willie Nelson, Paul Simon, Esperanza Spalding, Gotye, Stevie Wonder, The Boston Pops, Trey Anastasio, Laurie Anderson, T-Bone Walker, The Klezmatics, The Roches, The Everly Brothers, Sammy Davis Jr. and many others.
