Ragtime and Early Jazz Piano with Morten Gunnar Larsen

 Date:29/07/2006
 Type:Culture, Music
 Location:Scotland, Edinburgh

Possibly the finest interpreter of ragtime and early jazz piano music alive today ("The Svatislav Richter of Rag" New York Daily News). Larsen made a big impression at the Festival two years ago and returns with his heady brew of infectious music by Scott Joplin, Eubie Blake, Jelly Roll Morton etc.

He will present a special New Orleans section to the concert, to mark thoughts of the New Orleans hurricane disaster. This is a rarely heard treasure trove of music played by a pianist who matches technique with a unique understanding of the genre.

Date: Saturday 29th July 2006
Time: 8.45pm
Place: The Hub, Edinburgh
Admission: £12
