Jazz | Eldar 

The last time Eldar came to town for the Rochester International Jazz Festival, he sat down at the piano in Hatch Hall and dazzled the crowd with a few standards, a couple of originals and even a bit of Prokofiev. Then he blew everyone away with a brilliant rendition of George Gershwin's "Rhapsody In Blue." After first making waves as a nine-year-old prodigy from Kyrgyzstan, Eldar moved to the United States at nine and released his first album at 14. Now 27, he is still a keyboard phenomenon of the first order.

Eldar performs Tuesday, February 11, 7:30 p.m. at Athena Performing Arts Center, 800 Long Pond Rd. $25. jazz901.org.
