Washington Musica Viva: Dvořák Jazz Dances

September 21, 2011, 7:30 PM

Washington Musica Viva presents the world premiere of Dvořák Jazz Dances by contemporary composer Charley Gerard at the Embassy of the Czech Republic. The 5-member band includes Carl Banner (piano), James King (bass), Lenny Robinson (drums), Syberen van Munster (guitar) and Charley Gerard (alto saxophone).

Just as Dvořák was inspired by the American landscape to compose some of his finest works, composer Charley Gerard has written Dvořák Jazz Dances, inspired by the Czech composer’s two series of Slavonic Dances, Op. 46 and 72. Composer Gerard has been called “brilliant” by Dance Magazine for his jazz arrangements.

The piece Dvořák Jazz Dances was commissioned by the Embassy of the Czech Republic and Washington Musica Viva.
