(Jazz- Classical) Crossing

Works by

Chick Corea

David Bowie/ Jung Sun Kang

Nikolai Kapustin

Free and open to public

Overview:

I’m excited to play some of my favorite jazz-infused classical piano music for you. 

In Chick Corea’s Children’s Songs, we get a glimpse of Chick’s mind and heart through his genre-crossing music. 

I pay tribute to David Bowie in my newest transcription, “Life on Mars?”

The program is featuring Russian composer/pianist Nikolai Kapustin. His piano writing is rhythmically complex and highly virtuosic, making huge technical and musical demands on the performer. This music could only be composed by one steeped in the experience of performing and improvising jazz; and at the same time, could only be committed to paper by one possessing a solid classical training.

The program lasts ~50 minutes; there is no intermission. Reception to follow.
