McGurl & Alexandra are remarkable piano virtuosos as well as accomplished vocalists. Katherine sings in five languages and Brian is a compelling musical storyteller both vocally and pianistically. But it’s their sheer diversity that sets them apart. Blending multiple genres within pieces as well as throughout the performance, their extensive musical range includes Ragtime to Rap, Rachmaninoff to Rock, Tangos to Gypsy Folk and Broadway to Billy Joel - with a taste of Victor Borge.
88 Keys On Fire is a “class act” that blends humor and comedy into the performance. Both exquisite performers with engaging personalities, McGurl & Alexandra feature a delightful interplay between each other and the audience - keeping the performance moving at an energetic pace.
Requiring one grand piano plus a keyboard, McGurl & Alexandra feature an enticing repertoire of internationally flavored, well known musical pieces performed with a theatrical and improvisational flair. Highlights include: Libertango, Malaguena, Czardas, Habanera (from Carmen), Phantom Of The Opera and many others.
