– Rhapsody in Blue – Tiptoe & OS
The blue notes are hidden between the nodes, the Latin American rhythms are pulsating through the orchestra and everything emanates of jazz, swing and improvisation when Odense Symphony Orchestra and TipToe BigBand coalesce into a rhythmic and groovy machine. We will take you on a journey across the Atlantic – towards the packed and festive night clubs of New Orleans where the spirit of jazz resides. Gershwin was the man who brought jazz into the concert halls and united the classical and rhythmic music with one of the 20th century’s most famous pieces, Rhapsody in Blue. Passion filled Latin American folk music and tango sensation will be added, when we proceed to Cuban Overture and Daniel Freiberg’s Latin American Chronicles from 2015. After all of the American inspiration, we will end with a completely new Danish piece for the symphony orchestra and BigBand. Experience 2019’s jazz musician of the year, Michael Salling, and OS’s own clarinetist, René Højlund Rasmussen, when they demonstrate their breathtaking and virtuous solo performances.
