Visiting Presenter / Music

Andersons Play Gershwin featuring Vince Giordano

Description

“Virtuosos on clarinet & saxophone” (New York Times), Grammy-winning Juilliard graduates and identical twins Peter & Will Anderson will explore the music of George Gershwin with a fascinating narrative, entertaining video presentation, and live performance featuring Vince Giordano and Molly Ryan. One of the most striking geniuses of modern music, George Gershwin composed for Tin Pan Alley, Broadway, film, radio, and symphony orchestras, combining the sounds of jazz and European classical music. Selections will include "Rhapsody in Blue", "I Got Rhythm", "It Ain’t Necessarily So", "Summertime", "They Can’t Take That Away From Me", "Embraceable You", and "S’Wonderful". The Anderson brothers have been featured soloists on the Broadway stage, the Kennedy Center, Blue Note, Jazz at Lincoln Center, New Orleans Jazz Festival, live on Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion Radio Program, and can be heard on the soundtrack of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire. Vanity Fair magazine listed their album in “Four New Releases to Make You Love Jazz,” and the Washington Post said they “consistently bring a fresh perspective to classic jazz.”
