Professor Catherine Tackley, Head of Music at University of Liverpool, talks about the influence of jazz on this afternoon’s programme
Everybody dance! This afternoon's programme ranges from Bernstein’s famous dances for West Side Story to the high-kicking gauchos of Ginastera’s Estancia. The rhythms of the Americas are impossible to resist and every note will get your feet tapping. We introduce you to another one; the Juba dance by pioneering African-American composer, Florence Price, and add Gershwin’s fabulously jazzy Piano Concerto – played by Kirill Gerstein, a classical star who knows how to swing.
