92Y CONCERTS AT SUBCULTURE
Launching the second season of 92Y Concerts at SubCulture, Brazilian guitarist Odair Assad gives his first 92Y solo recital in the intimate, downtown space of SubCulture. His program includes pieces recently written for him by Gismonti and Brouwer, Brazilian jazz-pop songs of Garôto and Piazzolla’s Argentine nuevo tangos, among others. For nearly 50 years Odair has performed concerts with his brother Sérgio as part of the highly acclaimed Assad Brothers Duo. The pair still enjoys an active concert and recording partnership and celebrate their 50th anniversary with the release of a new album and worldwide tour in 2015. The brothers appear in concert at 92Y on Saturday, May 9, 2015.
This concert is Odair Assad’s only solo New York recital this season. He arrives in New York after a European tour which began in Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, followed by concerts in Denmark, Poland, Belgium and Switzerland.

IN CONVERSATION WITH LEON FLEISHER
On Starting with Brahms
Thriving in a sustained career as conductor, soloist and chamber musician for over 70 years, legendary pianist Leon Fleisher’s musical pedigree is remarkable. His son Julian Fleisher, named “the human iPod” by The Baltimore Sun, joins him in the Weill Art Gallery October 26, December 14 and February 8 discussing Fleisher’s life and career through the lens of music. The series, entitled Living Through Music, begins with the topic of Brahms in conjunction with the Jerusalem Quartet’s series on Brahms’ chamber music. Future conversations include discussions on contemporary music (December 14) and Schubert (February 8).
