Grammy nominated and multiple competition winner Greg Giannascoli will perform a recital with pianist Ron Stabinsky, celebrating the music of George Gershwin and Fritz Kreisler.

This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Bridgewater Library.

Grammy nominated marimba artist Greg Giannascoli was a winner of the 2001 Artist International New York Recital / Young Artist Competition and was also top prize winner of the 1997 Patrons of Wisdom International Young Artist Competition. Greg performs regularly on the many Community Concert Series programs throughout the US, as a soloist with orchestras and in recital throughout North America, Europe and Asia. Greg has performed recitals in Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, Theatro Juarez in Mexico and the Glenn Gould Studio in Canada. Greg performs on the Yamaha 6000 marimba. He performed with Orchestra 2001 on the Grammy nominated recording of George Crumb’s American Song Book VII; Songs of the Heartland. In Greg’s newly released book, “Opinions on Playing the Marimba”, he interviews many leading marimba players about what they learned from their teachers, what evolved along the way and what they now teach their students. Published by Heartland Marimba Festival Publications.  

Reviews of Greg’s performances include: “Here is music played so well it would capture and hold anybody’s attention indefinitely.”-Classical New Jersey, “With great mastery and two mallets in each hand Giannascoli gave a true lesson with what can be done with this singular instrument.”-The National of Mexico City, “Giannascoli’s performance of Miyoshi’s works was nothing less than astonishing, both in terms of artistry and virtuosity…tremendous facility…startling display of clarity and precision.”-Splendid Music Magazine. Reviews of Greg’s first CD, ‘Concertino’, include: “...elegantly phrased and sensitively performed...sails confidently through the most challenging technical passages.”-Percussive Notes. His most recent CD, ‘Prism Rhapsody’ was also reviewed: “…extremely gifted and skilled performer…facility behind the instrument apparent…virtuosic…precise…sensitive…beautiful lines…high caliber performances…stellar on all accounts.” – Percussive Notes.
