Everyone loves Gershwin! The epitome of American jazz, George Gershwin admired Maurice Ravel and wanted to study with the great French master. Ravel reportedly replied, “Why would you want to be a second-rate Ravel when you can be a first-rate Gershwin?” This evening presents the Montreal premieres of An American in Paris and Rhapsody in Blue, arranged for sextet by Matt Herskowitz. What an event this will be: Klezmer, jazz, and much more!
