Rhapsody in Blue by George Gershwin is one the most famous American works, with It's jazz and Klezmer influenced tunes. We will also play original works in both the Klezmer and early dixieland styles. Entertaining works by themselves they are an interesting look at the roots of Gershwins work. Maurice Ravel the french composer was a contempory of Gershwin and indeed Gershwin tried to study with him.
Ravels music is lush transparent and crystaline. The Pavane and the Mother goose suite are 2 of his most enduring works.
