This concert showcases music that incorporates or has been influenced by elements outside traditional classical music while traversing the spectrum of sound and emotions.  Musical elements include both the “stride’ of jazz piano as refined by Fats Waller and Duke Ellington and incorporated by Turnage, and the rustic harmonies of folk music referenced by Bartók.  Inspiration also comes from the Spanish Renaissance master El Greco’s mystical portraits in the music of George Tsontakis.  Finally, experience the impact of Vienna’s musical past, both nostalgic and ironic, heard in Korngold’s Suite Opus 23, commissioned for left-handed pianist Paul Wittgenstein.
