The piano is a key instrument in Season 4.
The two immensely gifted pianists, Kyle Shepherd and Jill Richards, while each is esteemed within their own sphere, are unlikely to have ever performed in a shared program, because one (Richards) generally plays the repertoire of western work (broadly defined, often rather inadequately described as 'classical) while the other is a renowned Jazz pianist. We are delighted to have them perform together (at times on the same piano); because of what we learn about both traditions from the dialogues between them. It is also a joy to watch their engagement with one another's practices.
