Award-winning pianist and master storyteller Richard Glazier takes viewers on a musical journey through the early 20th century in RICHARD GLAZIER IN CONCERT: FROM RAGTIME TO REEL TIME. A brilliant musical interpreter of standards, Glazier brings new life to classics by George Gershwin, Richard Rodgers, Lorenz Hart, Jerome Kern and other Golden Era composers, including "The Man I Love," "Rialto Ripples" (the theme song to the Ernie Kovaks Show) and "Rhapsody in Blue." Between piano performances, Glazier shares anecdotes about George and Ira Gershwin, concert pianist Oscar Levant and Hollywood movie-studio moguls. In one nostalgic segment, screen legend Mickey Rooney joins Glazier on the site of the former MGM Recording Stage to perform "You Made Love You (I Didn't Want to Do It)," a song popularized by Rooney's frequent co-star, Judy Garland.
