Every great saga needs a prequel. Long before jazz was first officially recorded, its foundations were laid in the slave songs of American plantations, African polyrhythms, and the European classical tradition.
On November 12th, through talks, interactive workshops and performances by some of the best young musicians in the country, the people and sounds that enabled the greatest leap forward in popular music recording for a century will be brought to life at Two Temple Place.
Lotte and Joseph Havlat explore the connection between jazz and classical music with a short recital of classical music that influenced the jazz tradition and vice versa. Program includes Brahms, Schumann and Ives.
