An all-Gershwin concert is synonymous with the names of Veri & Jamanis. World-renowned interpreters of the great American composer, the piano duo of Frances Veri and Michael Jamanis have captivated worldwide television and concert audiences for decades with their vibrant performances of Gershwin's works.

 

Their landmark set of performances at Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall marked the first performance of George Gershwin's original two-piano scores of "Rhapsody in Blue," the Second Rhapsody, "Cuban Overture" and "I Got Rhythm" Variations, as well as the world premiere of Frances Veri's two-piano transcription of "An American in Paris." The sold-out set of concerts also featured the first New York performance of all the solo and duo piano music of Gershwin, with premieres of the two-piano version of the Concerto in F and the Fourth

Prelude for solo piano, written in 1936.

 

Also highly esteemed for their television performances, Veri & Jamanis combined their talents with actor Hans Conried to produce Carnival of the Animals, for which they won national commendations for excellence in cultural programming. Other PBS appearances include Rhythm/Song! Blues ... Gershwin, for which they collaborated with Edward Jablonski, coauthor of the best-selling book, The Gershwin Years. Nationwide television audiences have experienced the magic of Veri and Jamanis on numerous talk shows and several PBS specials. Purely Gershwin, hosted by film star William Hurt, featured Veri and Jamanis performing a wide variety of the composer's music. The pianists also won an enthusiastic international following on their debut tour of Asia, performing to sold-out crowds in Tokyo, Osaka, Hong Kong, Beijing and Seoul.

 

The duo's numerous recordings appear on such labels as Phi lips, EMI, Book-of-the-Month Club, Crown Publishing and Random House. The American Record Guide praised their performance as "brilliant ... Anyone interested in Gershwin must hear [this album] ... the playing by the Jamanises is exemplary."

 

Graduates of the Juilliard School, Frances Veri and Michael Jamanis founded the Pennsylvania Academy of Music in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in 1989. They are now back in the realm of the performance world and as brilliant and charming as they ever were. For a change of pace, they also offer unique programs as a trio, with the addition of Michael Jamanis, Jr., and accomplished violinists and outstanding collaborating partner.
