Simon Tedeschi Plays Gershwin

Jazz Joint

Extraordinary concert pianist, Simon Tedeschi, is one of Australia’s foremost classical musicians. Perhaps more than any other classical pianist, Simon is renowned for his performances of the music of the legendary George Gershwin, who has in many ways been a musical ‘accompaniment’ to Tedeschi’s life. With three celebrated albums of Gershwin’s music and countless acclaimed performances of Rhapsody in Blue under his fingers, Simon presents a suite of favourites including this iconic work, Summertime, I Got Rhythm and more, alongside music of composers from Gershwin’s world, such as Rachmaninov, Chopin, Debussy and Fats Waller.

It’s always thrilling to hear this piece [Rhapsody in Blue], but to experience it performed live by Tedeschi is something few ever forget.
