One of a series of talks organised by ESRA Ramat Aviv in partnership with Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality, Immigrant Absorption section.

In this enjoyable talk we will explore the interrelations between classical music and Jazz. We will start with examples of 'highbrow' classical pieces serving as the basis for Jazz compositions, and later discuss George Gershwin's revolutionary 'Rhapsody in Blue'- one of the greatest cross-genre compositions.

Omer Shomrony is a prominent Israeli lecturer and critic of classical music. He teaches at the Buchmann-Mehta School of Music at Tel-Aviv University, as well as various colleges of continuing studies. He currently writes for "Mainly Music" online classical music website.
