30CC and the Flanders Festival in Flemish Brabant are joining forces for a unique all- Gershwin day. George Gershwin is one of the 20th century’s most popular American composers. His reputation is due mainly to his unusual musical versatility. Besides being a gifted songwriter and brilliant improviser, he was also a first-class bridge-builder between classical and popular music and he was an innovator within the American musical theatre tradition. Gershwin Triple Sunday will highlight his many facets.

One! French top pianist Frank Braley combines Gershwin’s works with a few jazzy compositions by Ravel, Debussy, Stravinsky, Schulhoff and Hindemith, European masters of the 1920s and 30s. After a few more classical Gershwin pieces, you will of course hear his unsurpassed Rhapsody in Blue!
