FINNISSY GERSHWIN ARRANGEMENTS PDF

A large portion of his oeuvre draws on music from the past, both canonic and obscure, subsuming them to create works that are both excitingly fresh and inextricably linked to music history. I first found the score in the library of the Sydney Conservatorium of Music which, thanks to the presence of musicologist Richard Toop, had quite a substantial Finnissy collection. It was one of a number of classic piano cycles by Finnissy, including his English Country-Tunes, and Verdi Transcriptions that got me hooked. Later, at the Royal Academy of Music, I dedicated a lecture-recital and my Masters thesis to his approach to transcription and transformation, and have had the honour of collaborating with him on several new works. But what makes these much more extraordinary than most jazz renditions is the way in which they play with and against the memories of past performances and interpretations of the songs embedded in them. The Gershwin Arrangements also seem to draw on memories of Gershwin and his friendship and frequent tennis matches with Arnold Schoenberg, blending and juxtaposing the styles of these composers.
