Louis Nagel Piano

Louis Nagel Selected Programs

"I was always very impressed when he played an encore, one of those short pieces which he improvised the spot. They always had a logical beginning, middle and end, I have never run across anyone else to the present day who could do that in that way"

...Roman Rudnytsky, International concert pianist and Professor Emeritus, Dana Conservatory

I have headed the Outreach in the Performing Arts program at the Music School and believe deeply in the concept of community involvement for classically trained performers.

And with particular pleasure, I have collaborated with my wife, Julie Jaffee Nagel, psychologist, musician, and author of the book Melodies Of The Mind in a variety of programs exploring the relationship between music and psychology.
