Noted actor Sherman Howard and New York-based pianist David Kaplan perform Richard Strauss's melodrama on the 1864 Poem by Alfred, Lord Tennyson on Classical Crossroads' "First Friday's at First! ~ fff" recital series.
American actor Sherman Howard enjoys an esteemed and wide-ranging career in theater, films, and television. In addition, he has a passion for classical music. He has appeared with the Philadelphia Orchestra in Rachmaninoff's The Bells (inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's poem) and in the role of Prospero in the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra's presentation of Sibelius' suite of incidental music to Shakespeare's The Tempest.
New York-based pianist David Kaplan is well known to aficionados in Southern California, where he grew up and attended UCLA. New York Times chief music critic Anthony Tommasini picked David's performance at Manhattan's (Le) Poisson Rouge of Schumann's Davidsbündlertänze, interspersed with commissioned compositions, as one of the Best Classical Music Performances of 2015. David was recently awarded the Doctorate of Musical Arts at Yale, where he studied with Claude Frank.
