Kern and Gershwing, versions by Keith Jarrett

Eduardo Fernández, piano

Ol’ Man River by Jerome Kern & Summertime by George Gershwin, on versions by Keith Jarrett

Complementing his concert in the series “E.T.A. Hoffmann: Music and Literature”, Fernández performed two songs originally from musicals: “Ol’ Man River”, composed by Jerome Kern for the musical Show Boat, and the aria “Summertime”, from the opera Porgy and Bess by George Gershwin. These two composers based their styles on compositional elements taken from the blues and jazz, giving their works a typically North-American character.
