Event Description

Jazz pianist and composer Vijay Iyer’s Human Archipelago, written for cello soloist Inbal Segev, makes use of jazz techniques like improvisation to explore human migration. We present his new work (a Fresno Philharmonic co-commission) as part of the California Festival, a month-long statewide celebration of new music.  George Antheil’s A Jazz Symphony composed in the 1920’s was one of the first American works to fuse jazz and classical music.  Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 is a work of extraordinary rhythmic vitality, which has actually been covered by several jazz musicians.
