The Gilmore

  Pianist Joseph Moog, a native of Ludwigschafen, Germany and a two-time winner of the International Classical Music Awards, is the next pianist to appear on The Gilmore's Rising Stars Series.  In a conversation with Cara Lieurance, Mr. Moog relates how his musician parents first introduced a piano to the home. For a couple of years before formal training began, the toddler used it as a musical playground for his own melodies and improvisations.
