Jeremy Denk, piano and Britten Sinfonia - Gershwin: Rhapsody in Blue

Jeremy Denk, piano
Britten Sinfonia

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.
