The notorious Anderson and Roe Piano Duo (Elizabeth Joy Roe and Greg Anderson, pictured) join the Hartford Symphony Orchestra for a Gershwin-fest of sorts; Roe will tackle the Gersh's Rhapsody in Blue, while Anderson has his way with the "I Got Rhythm" Variations for Piano and Orchestra. For a piano duo, these two are pretty forward-thinking. (Their entertaining YouTube take on Astor Piazzolla's Libertango, for example, has been viewed over a million times.) The Gershwin Bros. would be proud.
