Festival Lates – The Jazz Age
Thursday 25 July at 9.15pm Approx 1 hr (no interval) Picture Gallery, Paxton House
Tom Poster, Piano
Music for a late summer evening, including Ravel’s ‘La Valse’, Pavane’, and Tom’s own arrangements of songs from the Great American Songbook by George Gershwin, Cole Porter and others.
An early fan of jazz music, Ravel travelled to America and met Gershwin following a performance of ‘Funny Face’ on Broadway. The friendship and admiration that developed between the two composers forms the backdrop to this short recital, a delicious blend of Gallic flair and smooth American jazz!
“…a marvel who can play anything in any style.” –The Herald
