Taken by the rhythm

THU 2.12.2021 at 19.00 VAASA CITY HALL

Vaasa City Orchestra
con. & sol. Simon Crawford-Phillips, piano

George Gerswhin: I got rhythm, variations, arr. Farrington

Magnus Lindgren, Lina Nyberg, Andrea Tarrodi, Anders Nilsson, Emilia Amper, Svante Henryson: Reflections on a ‘Visa från Utanmyra’ (Jan Johansson)

Johann Wenzel Kalliwoda: Symphony No 5


Jazz pianist Jan Johansson’s Visa från Utanmyra is one of the most wonderful traditional Swedish songs, and we will hear variations composed on it as Simon Crawford-Phillips arrives to conduct the orchestra from the piano bench. Of course, there will be plenty of swing also in George Gershwin’s music, and there is no doubt that the refreshing fifth symphony of Bohemian-based Johann Wenzel Kalliwoda will take wing in this rhythm fiesta.
