Award-winning pianist and saxophonist Euan Stevenson and Konrad Wiszniewski give fascinating insights into the relationship between classical music and jazz.
In this superb, informal and entertaining presentation two of the UK’s leading jazz musicians improvise a Bach-style reinvention and an arrangement of the Duke Ellington Orchestra’s theme tune, TakeThe A Train in the style of a Mozart Sonata.
Discover why romantic composers like Chopin, Rachmaninoff and Duke Ellington all loved the same key. Learn why Miles Davis and Eric Satie were kindred spirits and hear brilliantly performed jazz standards and original compositions from Stevenson and Wiszniewski’s widely acclaimed group, New Focus’ two albums.
