Washington Musica Viva presents Dvořák Jazz Dances by contemporary composer Charley Gerard at the Kennedy Center Millennium Stage. 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.
