Saturday October 19
Markideion Municipal Theatre
Time: 8.30 p.m.

“Three concertos and a pavane, or “three twentieth-century works alongside a Classical masterpiece”. Both fittingly describe this mesmerizing programme, yet the concert’s title reads, more appropriately, ‘Mozart and Jazz’!
Mozart’s wonderful Clarinet concerto will be interpreted by the renowned soloist Wenzel Fuchs, Berlin Philharmonic’s principal clarinetist. Next to Mozart’s concerto, all three more modern compositions by Ravel, Copland, and Schickele bear a connection to jazz music by integrating jazz stylistic features and effects. In his Concerto for chamber orchestra, Peter Schickele uses extensive jazz-blues inspired pentatonic scale runs, whilst Aaron Copland in his Concerto for clarinet uses slapping basses and whacking harp sounds. As for Maurice Ravel’s masterpiece Pavane for a dead princess, it provided the musical substance to several popular and jazz music adaptations, the most notable of which being ‘The Lamp Is Low’, recorded in 1939.
