Where jazz and classical meet, there reigns George Gershwin. As a young composer of music hall and Broadway songs, Gershwin broke through in 1924 with Rhapsody in Blue, a perfect marriage of symphonic style and the rhythmic energy of jazz. Classical music clearly attracted Gershwin: just listen to An American in Paris or his opera Porgy and Bess, both of which are brimming with brilliant melodies. In this programme the almost 30-year-old Anima Eterna Brugge take their very first steps into jazz. And they do so in excellent company. Pianist Bart Van Caenegem, who earned his spurs in both genres, will be playing an appropriate piano - an early Steinway & Sons. And the concert’s ‘leading lady’ is one of Anima's favourite female singers: American soprano Claron McFadden, who besides technique and expressiveness, also has the mettle and panache of a born entertainer.
