Price: £16 - £10 (£3 for music students)
"Classical Meets Jazz" is a conversation between two worlds - the concert halls of 17th century europe and the bustling clubs of Harlem. This high-energy program features two internationally acclaimed pianists, Eyran Katsenelenbogen and Tal Zilber, who speak classical and jazz as their mother tongues.
Their virtuosic improvisations have attracted over 1,000,000 views on YouTube and drawn enthusiastic audiences throughout US, Germany, Israel, and China. In this program, Tal and Eyran begin in their respective camps - performing traditional classical and Jazz repertoire - until the two worlds collide: Gershwin’s Summertime gets recast as a four-part fugue and Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker learns how to swing.
