January 18. When he was a mere 12 years old, Russian-American wunderkind Eldar Djangirov became the youngest-ever guest on Marian McPartland’s venerated NPR show “Piano Jazz.” Now 26, Eldar, as he’s also known, has found fans in keyboard kings like the late Dr. Billy Taylor and Dave Brubeck and regularly gets written up in Downbeat, which says “his command of the instrument is beyond staggering.” Last year saw the release of two acclaimed albums by the young maestro, Breakthrough, a jazz set, and Bach/Brahms/Prokofiev, a solo classical outing. The prodigy performs at the Windham Civic Center this month. 8pm. $25, $22 (seniors), $5 (students). Windham. (518) 734-3868.
