An American In Paris (for piano four hands)

Masterpieces of Beethoven, Schubert, Prokofiev and Gershwin

In celebration of his 70th birthday, the acclaimed pianist Julian Jacobson brings four rich and varied programmes of major works by four composers with whom he has been particularly associated over his long and distinguished career. Concerts 1-3 include the epic "War Trilogy" sonatas of Prokofiev, while the final concert ends with Jacobson's brilliant piano duet transcription of Gershwin's "American in Paris".

Schubert's "Wanderer" Fantasy, based on a song of that name, is an uncharacteristically virtuoso work and also, in its combining of four movements into a single span of music, an extremely influential one. The torrential passions of Beethoven's "Appassionata" have hardly been superseded to this day. And to finish in a lighter vein, four numbers from Prokofiev's ever-popular "Romeo and Juliet" and my own transcription of Gershwin's colourful "An American in Paris".
