Introduction/abstract

London Symphony Orchestra · Rudolf Buchbinder · Semyon Bychkov

Gershwin, Rachmaninov

Jazz meets classical: After the success of his «Rhapsody in Blue», George Gershwin wrote a piano concerto that combined jazz and classical music. Rudolf Buchbinder is not only an exceptional performer of classical repertoire but also an enthusiastic fan of jazz. Joined by the London Symphony Orchestra, he puts the swing in Gershwin, whose piano concerto is often compared to the music of Rachmaninov. And so the 11th Grafenegg Festival ends with the «Symphonic Dances», a sculpture in sound depicting midday, sunset and midnight.
