The Troubles Play Bach, Shostakovich and Kodaly.

John Rae – conductor, Patrick Bleakley – bass, Lisa Tomlins – soprano/soul

The Troubles, Wellingtons favorite jazz group, perform the music of Bach, Shostakovich and Kodaly.

Shostakovich Leningrad Symphony (arr. Megan Ward),
Bach Cello Suite No.2 D minor Prelude (arr. Patrick Bleakley),
Zoltán Kodály
Dances of Marosszék (arr. John Rae),

Tap your toes through a concert that celebrates the brilliance of Dmitri Shostakovich, the Soviet Russian composer and pianist and a prominent figure of 20th-century music who ripped off jazz and put it in the concert hall, creating music of instant and enduring popularity.

Drown your misery with Bach in a truly wild ride of energy and drive, filled with a sort of confident sensibility that rounds off the intensive emotional experience of jazz music as a whole. D minor: a key of seriousness, sadness, tragedy, loss, and strength

Grab a partner and dance away to Zoltán Kodaly’s 
Dances of Marosszék, playful and carefree music, dramatic, exotic, and almost frenzied. Ripped off folk music at it’s best.

Featuring a host of guests from both the classical and jazz world (plus all the regular stars of The Troubles), this one off, Saturday night extravaganza will change the way you listen to classical (or any music for that matter) music forever!
