Savannah Music Festival: Bill Charlap and Renee Rosnes Live

Airs Thursday, November 23 at 8:00 p.m. The art of playing jazz piano is something that Bill Charlap and Renee Rosnes pursued for more than 20 years before they met one another. After these two premiere pianists fell in love and became a couple, they realized that one of the biggest challenges of being married and working together was finding time to rehearse. With three children and busy careers playing as leaders of their own groups, they eventually made the time to record together and began touring as a duo. This episode features highlights from two concerts that they played at the Charles H. Morris Center, across from each other on two nine-foot Steinways.
