Classical music

Conductor Giordano Bellincampi
Piano Tamara-Anna Cislowska

Gershwin An American in Paris
Gershwin Rhapsody in Blue
Falla The Three Cornered Hat

A concert of musical postcards, literally so in the case of An American in Paris. Gershwin’s love song to the Paris of the Roaring Twenties is a jaunty romp, complete with taxi horns and a swooning theme when our hero meets an elegant Parisian lady.

Terrific fun, too, is Rhapsody in Blue, the quintessential picture of Jazz Age New York, performed by Tamara-Anna Cislowska, one of Australia’s most acclaimed and recognised pianists.

Then, to sun-drenched Spain. In Falla’s ballet of village life, the oafish magistrate, whose official headgear gives the piece its title, pursues the miller’s wife. When she outwits him, everybody dances a joyful fandango, with castanets blazing.
