Event details

Pianist Jacob Ertl, in his solo recital “The Pianist Speaks,” explores music that communicates compelling and provocative themes steeped in social justice, equality, and the journey of life through choice and consequence. His program includes Liszt’s Après une Lecture de Dante: Fantasia quasi Sonata, a movement from Schubert’s Sonata in A major, Isabelle Eberhardt Dreams of Pianos by Missy Mazzoli, and No Surprises by Radiohead (as transcribed by Christopher O’Riley). Read the online program notes.

Ertl has performed extensively in the United States and throughout Canada, China, France, Israel, Mexico, Panama, Serbia, and Spain. Performance highlights include solo recital debuts at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall and Merkin Concert Hall in New York City, and Chicago radio’s “Live from WFMT” concert series. A sought-after performer, teacher, and adjudicator, Ertl currently serves as Coordinator of Keyboard Studies, Associate Professor of Piano, and Performance Program Director at the Nazareth College School of Music.
