Boston Globe: “Gerstein jazzes up Gershwin in Berklee show”

2010 Gilmore Artist Kirill Gerstein performed “An Evening With Kirill Gerstein: Rhapsody in Blue” at the Berklee College of Music on Friday, March 30.

He began by interspersing György Ligeti’s Études Nos. 4 (“Fanfares’’) and 5 (“Arc-en-ciel’’) with two selections from Earl Wild’s “Seven Virtuoso Études After Gershwin,’’ “Somebody Loves Me’’ and “I’ve Got Rhythm,’’ playing the quartet without a break, as if they were the four movements of a single piece.
