Tangled up in Blues 💙

February 1 @ 7:30 pm 9:00 pm

Tangled Up in Blues (February 1, 2023, 7:30pm)

One might ask – Can classical violin and piano fully express the modernist jazz idioms of Wynton Marsalis’ ‘Fiddle Dance Suite’? How about faithfully voice the blues, spirituals and Black folk music influences in Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson’s ‘Blues Form’ and ‘Louisiana Blues Strut’? What about capturing the expressionism of the Harlem Renaissance sculptures that inspired William Grant Still’s ‘Suite for violin and piano’? Billy Childs’ ‘Incident on Larpenteur Avenue’ and Alvin Singleton’s ‘Jasper Drag’ present additional challenges, speaking directly to incidents of racialized violence against black men. Nadia and Carl explore the music and these issues.
