Although the great American pianist-composer-conductor Leonard Bernstein died when Michael Brown was three years old, Brown came to know the maestro through his recordings, compositions, and his surviving circle of family and friends. At the Gilmore Keyboard Festival on Friday, May 2, Michael Brown performed a solo piano program of works by members of that circle, by Michael Brown, and by Bernstein himself. Brown spoke about the program with Cara Lieurance.
