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 presentation which earned a five-star review from the Herald during Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival 2019, two of the UK’s leading jazz musicians improvise a Bach-style reinvention and an arrangement of the Duke Ellington Orchestra’s theme tune, Take The 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.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for New Focus - Classical Connection are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
