Veri and Jamanis in Budapest

For admirers of the Lancaster piano duo, artistic founders of the Pennsylvania Music Academy (PAM), and for those who simply enjoy good music and travel, visit: .

Veri's former Lancaster piano student, now Budapest resident, and current East European real estate developer Richard Field 'filmed' the couple with "a hand held high definition HDCCD video camera and a cheap tripod" as they went sight seeing in Budapest and during their concert. He then edited their sight seeing and concertizing into a very educational and entertaining short video.

The concert sound track is actually from Veri's original two piano transcription of "An American in Paris" that Veri and Jamanis recorded and released in 1997 to mark Gershwin's 100th birthday, which explains its high reproduction quality.

Veri and Jamanis are scheduled to perform the full Gershwin program at Weil Recital Hall (Carnegie Hall) on March 26th at 8:00 pm.
