Take five in Paris, the early twentieth century city and the centre of the new age and a melting pot of composers, dancers, artists, thinkers and writers. There is no doubt this amazing place and time significantly influenced the music of Gershwin and Stravinsky and many of their contemporaries.

Gershwin’s music is imbued with the textures and rich harmonies of the nightlife of Paris; a sound he folded into his New York inspired jazz sound.

Joining us is internationally-renowned pianist Peter Donohoe and our very own co-principal Clarinetist Sacha Rattle for a relaxed yet sophisticated evening of Jazz inspired masterpieces.
