Following the success of Gershwin & Me, Sydney-based classical pianist Simon Tedeschi and ABC Classics presented a new installment of the iconic catalogue of George Gershwin: Gershwin: Take Two! Performed again by Tedeschi, the recording includes guest appearances from Australian jazz legend James Morrison and one of the rising stars of the international music stage, ARIA Award-winning singer Sarah McKenzie. The album features classic Gershwin compositions such as Embraceable You, Nice Work If You Can Get It and Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off, as well as a beautiful solo piano version of Rhapsody in Blue, alongside some less familiar but certain-to-become-favourite numbers revealing Gershwin’s extraordinary versatility and creativity, and his unfailing ability to delight.
In an interview with Clive Paget of Limelight, Tedeschi talks about the success of his first album(Gershwin and Me) and how he came up with the tracks for his most recent Gershwin release.
