The Genius of Gershwin – from Broadway to Rhapsody in Blue

Trieste Early Jazz Orchestra, with the support of the Friuli Venezia Giulia Regione, presents:

The Genius of Gershwin – from Broadway to Rhapsody in Blue.

In the first part some of the most beautiful songs of his musicals, interpreted by Paolo Venier, suave-voiced crooner of vast experience, will be presented. The second part is dedicated to the Rhapsody, in its original 1924 arrangement revisited by Tom Hmeljak, composer from Trieste. Giulio Scaramella, a young multi-award winning pianist of classical training from Gorizia – who has a beautiful touch – is the soloist on the piano. Petar Matošević, a young new graduate in conducting from Trieste’s G. Tartini Conservatory of Music, with considerable experience behind him already, will be directing.
