A great program featuring classical/jazz music by Claude Bolling
George Gershwin, and William Grant Still
February 29, 2020
Join AmiciMusic for a thrilling crossover program exploring the connections between classical and jazz music through the works of Claude Bolling, William Grant Still, and George Gershwin. This program features Bolling’s incredible Suite for Violin and Jazz Piano that was written originally for Pinchas Zukerman plus a fantastic arrangement of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue and a movement from William Grant Still’s incredible Violin Suite. Tim Schwarz, violin, and Daniel Weiser are the featured performers. Formerly known as the Upper Valley Duo, they got their graduate degrees together at Peabody and were the 1996 U.S. Artistic Ambassadors of Music, which resulted in a two month tour of the Middle East and Southeast Asia playing American music. Don’t miss this fantastic program connecting the worlds of classical and jazz music!
