Mercury News reports:
John Perry is not just one of the world’s most famous piano teachers, though his students crop up at the top of major competitions with alarming regularity. Perry, long based at the University of Southern California’s Thornton School of Music, also is a top-shelf concert pianist himself. And he is coming to San Jose to perform.
Saturday night at San Jose State University, he will give an all-Beethoven recital, a kickoff event for the 21st annual Young Pianists’ Beethoven Competition.
