2117381Jeremy Denk: Rhapsody in Blue
DateTuesday 27th February 2018
DescriptionPianist Jeremy Denk returns to Britten Sinfonia for a rhapsody of jazz and dance inspired music by Gershwin and Stravinsky.

From its opening clarinet glissando Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue has become synonymous with 1920s America and its popularity continues to this day. Performed here in the original jazz band arrangement with acclaimed pianist and Milton Court Resident Artist Jeremy Denk, the work is paired with Stravinsky’s rhythmically complex Concerto for piano and wind. Both works explore rhythm from the syncopated cadenzas in Stravinsky to the abundant use of dance and ragtime rhythms in Gershwin.
