Jazz Pianist Aaron Diehl At Nazareth College

Pianist Aaron Diehl is one of today’s most sought after jazz virtuosos, consistently playing with what The New York Times describes as “melodic precision, harmonic erudition, and elegant restraint.” A featured soloist with the New York Philharmonic, Diehl’s meticulously thought-out performances, collaborations, and compositions are a leading force in today’s generation of jazz contemporaries, spearheading a distinct union of traditional and fresh artistry.

In “Paradoxes in Performance,” Diehl interprets classical works and brings a new twist to jazz favorites.
