Louis Nagel

 

continued

For fans of the pianist, no more need be said. But for those who don't know him yet--and where have you been since he moved to town forty years ago?-Louis Nagel's got a pearly tone, a subtle touch, a brilliant technique, a firm grasp of form, a robust sense of rhythm, a lovely way of spinning out a phrase for maximum lyrical effectiveness, and a deft way of balancing lines so that every strand is clear. On top of that, the guy is a knowledgeable and witty raconteur, a talent he displays at each performance in his trademark commentary between pieces, as well as in two free lectures on Beethoven on July 7 and 10, also at the Kerrytown Concert House.    (end of article)
