  • Friday 2nd March 7:30pm until 9:30pm
Jeremy Denk performs Gershwin's beloved Rhapsody in Blue with Britten Sinfonia, in the original jazz band arrangement.

From its opening clarinet glissando Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue has become synonymous with 1920’s 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.
