Gershwin’s classic music of 1920’s Hollywood and Broadway
Riverside Theatres brings you Gershwin’s classic music of 1920s Broadway and Hollywood with world-renowned, Australian-bred pianist extraordinaire, Simon Tedeschi, on Friday 16 August 2013. Though separated by time, pianist Simon Tedeschi and George Gershwin have been connected in spirit. Tedeschi’s concert, Gershwin and Me, is an expression of this simpatico. Songs range from sparkling Gershwin originals for solo piano, to famous arrangements such as I Got Rhythm, Summertime, I Loves You, Porgy and culminate in nothing other than the Rhapsody in Blue.
Tedeschi is quite often described by respected critics and musical peers as “one of the finest artists in the world” making the young pianist’s mark on music both undeniable and admirable. Renowned especially for championing non-standard repertoire, Tedeschi enjoys a full international performing career.
Tedeschi’s performance is of the highest calibre and his interpretation sympathetic, deftly moving from the brighter and punchy style of ragtime, through the mellow romanticism of Gershwin’s ballads, jazz and blues. Pure perfection! His unique take on Gershwin’s timeless repertoire is sure to put a smile on your face and a swing in your step!
