Presented by Monash University Academy of Performing Arts

This concert brings together the two worlds of jazz and classical music. The Monash Academy Orchestra and the Monash University Big Band join forces to present a program of works which embody the jazz idiom.

The celebrated American composer John Adams composed Shaker Loops in 1978. Adams writes ‘the term ‘Shaker’ conjures up visions of the pious and industrious souls caught up in the ecstatic frenzy of a dance that culminated in the epiphany of physical and spiritual transcendence’.

James Russo, winner of the 2013 Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music Concerto Competition, will perform Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G, a work deeply infused with jazz idioms and harmonies.

Duke Ellington’s jazz symphony Black, Brown and Beige received its premiere at Carnegie Hall in 1943. Described by Ellington as ‘a tone parallel to the history of the Negro in America’, it is his largest and most ambitious composition. It is performed alongside Rolf Liebermann’s Concerto for Jazz Band and Orchestra – a work that skilfully brings together the two disparate ensembles.

Not suitable for children 12 years and under.
