President Truman’s Pianist Chronicles His Life in Music
Maestro George Manos Recounts His Time with Truman and Compelling Musical Career
“The President’s Pianist” follows
"Sometimes when I'd play, with the piano pushed right up next to the president's open office door, I'd see him look up from his desk as if he were wondering what I was playing. Other times he'd walk out and ask me, then chat about the composer and the piece a bit, and return to his desk. He was always direct and to the point, and never wasted time. He couldn't afford to, in his position. But he'd grown up that way as a hard-working farmer. At other times he'd come out and sit beside me on the piano bench and watch what I was doing. Often one of Chopin's mazurkas or minuets would trigger his interest."
Manos has performed at famed classical music venues such as the Bethlehem Bach Festival and the Tanglewood Music Festival. Manos also founded and conducted the Killarney Bach Festival in
Manos performed with many of the leading musicians of the 20th century, including the renowned composers and conductors
