East meets West, and the Recital Hall becomes a swinging jazz café, complete with tables, wine and low lighting…

We kick off with student performances of the heavily jazz-influenced Soviet composer Kapustin. Julian will sing Weill/Gershwin's Tchaikowsky (and Other Russians) (the Russian Composers’ Song), and then return to the piano to open the American Songbook, joined by jazz vocalist Sara Colman who is replacing the indisposed Liane Carrol at very short notice. We are very grateful to Sara for stepping into the breach at the eleventh hour.
