Pianist, pedagogue, and Kennedy Center Honoree Leon Fleisher is one of the greatest classical musicians of our time. His son, Julian, is a singer, songwriter, and pillar of the downtown New York theater and music scenes, alongside friends like Justin Vivian Bond, Kiki & Herb, Ana Gasteyer, and Gabriel Kahane. The younger Fleisher’s shows, often performed with his Rather Big Band, are famous for cutting across a vast swath of popular song with brio. Tonight, father and son continue a moving musical dialogue that they began with their critically acclaimed first public performance together at The Public Theater in 2015.
