St Martin’s Players: The Golden Age of Jazz
available until 13th March
As part of the Fresh Horizons concert series.
Pioneers of twentieth century composition, Copland, Gershwin and Shostakovich each took inspiration from the musical richness of the interwar Jazz Age. St Martin’s Players showcase the thrumming cultural atmosphere of the era, from the iconic American landscapes of Copland’s Appalachian Spring to the rhythmic flair of works by Shostakovich and Gershwin, presented here in effervescent arrangements by Iain Farrington.
Watch Natasha Riordan in discussion with pianist and arranger Iain Farrington.
Copland – Appalachian Spring
Gershwin arr. Iain Farrington – Rhapsody in Blue
