Chamber Music at Rodeph Sholom reprises their classical/Jazz crossover
ensemble with the New York Premiere of pianist/composer Ted
Rosenthal’s new chamber jazz composition, Excursions and Impressions
for flute, clarinet, cello and Jazz Trio, on Saturday, January 31st,
at 1pm in Schnurmacher Chapel. The guest ensemble, Ted Rosenthal,
piano, Susan Rotholz, flute, Alan Kay, clarinet, Eliot Bailen, cello
and Artistic Director, Thomson Kneeland, bass, and Eric Halvorson,
drums, will play nueva tango works by Astor Piazzolla (1921-1922) and
Pablo Ziegler (1944-), a song selection by George Gershwin
(1898-1937), and Ted Rosenthal (1959-) “jazzing up the classics.”
Rosenthal, the recipient of three grants from the National Endowment
for the Arts and 1st-prize winner of the 2nd Thelonius Monk Piano
Competition, regularly performs and records new treatments and
“derangements” of great American standards, jazz tunes and classical
themes, as well as his own original compositions. He is the pianist of
choice for such top jazz vocalists as Anne Hampton Callaway, Helen
Merrill, and Mark Murphey. Chamber Music at Rodeph Sholom is presented
to bring both the best of the chamber music repertory to the community
and to explore the Jewish heritage in music.
