The world-renowned King’s College Choir of Cambridge joins Britten Sinfonia for performances of both works, conducted by Stephen Cleobury.

The concert opens with the world premiere of a new work by Emma-Ruth Richards, directed by Britten Sinfonia leader Jacqueline Shave. You can help support Emma-Ruth Richards’ new commission through our Musically Gifted campaign.

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.
