George Gershwin |

George GershwinGeorge Gershwin | George Gershwin Rhapsody in Blue from the greatest piece of American classical music? Could be. It could also be exaggerated piece of American classical music, but the Florida Orchestra came with a twist on the old following his concert Friday at Ferguson Hall Straz Center for the Performing Arts.

The soloist was Gershwin himself, or at least a 1925 piano roll transfer to software for Yamaha Disklavier Grand Concert, a piano player of high technology. This was a trick, of course, but there was some musical interest is in the style of Gershwin. He was quicker and stronger rhythm than is typically heard today.

Stefan Sanderling wore headphones to hear the original solo and arrangement of jazz by Ferde Grofé, allowing the driver to coordinate the joint deployment between piano and orchestra. However, the performance was uneven, and most of the time the piano was playing outside alone, a stranger, rather boring experience of seeing the keys and pedals move by themselves. I would rather see and hear a real solo.

Sanderling and the orchestra were more engaged by the work of other American in the program, Ives’s Third Symphony (The Camp Meeting), a less steep creations of the composer, quoting hymns like What friend we have a Jesus . He composed his Symphony in 1901-04, but did not get full performance until 1946, the music incredible negligence achieves such.

To open the concert on Friday, Sanderling dipped a toe in the Second Viennese School, with Webern Op. 1 Passacaglia, which has an elegance that contrasts with the composition of the composer in the 12-tone triumvirate alongside his mentor Schoenberg and Berg. Classical Vienna was represented by Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony, which included disturbing oboe solo played by Katherine Young.

• The orchestra has designated March as the month of fundraising – units of the promise of an NPR – but instead of having a pre-release concert by a board member or administrator, shown a promotional video. Free Produced by Bay News 9, will run before each concert this month.
