CANCELLED: Rhapsody in Blue

Jonathan Stockhammer, conductor
Andreas Boyde, piano
Turku Philharmonic Orchestra

Samuel Barber: The School for Scandal, overture
Ernest Bloch: Concerto Grosso no 1
Roy Harris: Symphony no 3
George Gershwin: Rhapsody in Blue
Aaron Copland: Billy the Kid, orchestral suite

The performances of Andreas Boyde electrify audiences. His rendition of Gershwin’s classic Rhapsody in Blue in Kiel in 2019 elicited glowing reviews. The piece balances on the boundary of classical music and jazz and is a superb virtuoso vehicle, as indeed is Bloch’s Concerto Grosso. These sounds emanating from the USA of the 1920s and 1930s are balanced by Barber’s earliest work for full orchestra, the best-known work of Roy Harris and Copland’s folkish ballet suite. US-born conductor Jonathan Stockhammer enjoys performing music that blurs genre boundaries.
