Bill Murray, actor Jan Vogler, cello Mira Wang, violin Vanessa Perez, piano
Bill Murray and Jan Vogler met during their travels and became friends in New York. Curious about each other's artistic worlds and interests, the actor and the cellist soon had the idea to work together on a project. The program would showcase the core of American values in literature and music and communicate the bridges artists have built between America and Europe. Twain, Hemingway, Whitman, Cooper, Bernstein, Gershwin, and Foster are some of the strongest voices that influenced generations of humans in America and gave the world a picture of the charm, energy, and creative force of the New World.
In 2017, the joint program celebrated its premiere. The Hollywood star's love for classical music is young and his art of language boundless, giving all the more reason to look forward to a fascinating encounter between great music and great literature featuring two masters of their art.
