Britten Sinfonia: Rhapsody in Blue with Jeremy Denk

Jeremy Denk, piano

To include;
Gershwin: Rhapsody in Blue (original jazz band version)
Stravinsky: Concerto for piano and winds

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 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.

Britten Sinfonia: Easter Voices

Ben Goldscheider, horn
Britten Sinfonia Voices
Eamonn Dougan, conductor

Mozart: Venite populi
Stravinsky: Fanfare for a New Theater
Mozart: Missa Brevis in F, K192
Stravinsky: Pater noster, Ave Maria
Esa-Pekka Salonen: Concert etude for solo horn
Stravinsky: Mass

The talents of the acclaimed Britten Sinfonia Voices, conducted by Eamonn Dougan, are showcased in a special Easter concert featuring two masses written 170 years apart. Stravinsky considered function as important as form and composed his Mass, which many consider his finest religious work, for church use, writing 'religious music without religion is almost always vulgar'. The Mass features gorgeous harmonic colours, animating the text of the Roman Catholic liturgy with voice, wind and brass.

In the run-up to writing his own Mass, Stravinsky stumbled across a handful of Mozart’s masses in a Los Angeles bookshop; Britten Sinfonia’s Easter celebration is completed by Mozart’s beautiful Missa Brevis.
