American Perspectives III: Rhapsodies in Blues

Prelude Interview with Aaron Diehl and Inon Barnatan hosted by Robert John Hughes · 2 PM

Part of

The Baker-Baum Concert Hall

Seen by many as America’s classical music, jazz has had an immense influence on the works of American and European composers. Just as the featured composers on this program blurred the lines between jazz and classical, so do the artists performing on this afternoon’s concert. Jazz sensation Aaron Diehl and his trio will join classical musicians for works ranging from Ravel to Mary Lou Williams, culminating in a show stopping performance of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue.

Join us following the concert in the Wu Tsai QRT.yrd for a postlude performance by the Aaron Diehl Trio.
