Although I have no figures, my guess is that the performance of Kapustin works has exploded in the last ten years?

Does this mean many classical players like jazz?

Does this mean more professional pianists would play transcriptions by pianists like Tatum, Fats Waller, and Keith Jarrett if it was considered more acceptable to do so? I'm talking about playing written out jazz works as opposed to actually improvising.

I love jazz, and i love Kapustin. I'm starting to learn two of his concert etudes.


I need SOME sort of help; I have yet to figure out what kind.

I don't like Jazz. I can respect it, but I cannot sit down and listen to anything Jazz for more than a few seconds. Also "Blues" makes me physically sick.

"Secretly" was meant to be humorous.

You are probably severely unexposed to both genres.

Neither are as great as listening to Jazz while eating salami. grin

If you were stranded on a desert island and were only allowed to have one, would you pick jazz or salami?

I'd take the salami, for sure. grin


(Note: I actually do like jazz; I can't play it, but I do enjoy listening to it)

Here in Philadelphia, classical and jazz share the one public radio station that still plays "non-popular" music.

Of course! Both are serious art forms and deserve equal respect.

The story goes that the legendary classical pianist Vladimir Horowitz often visited the jazz clubs of New York to listen to the improvisation sessions that played such a great part in the night-time scenery of early-to-mid-20th century America.

On this occasion, Horowitz had in hand something that he was quite proud of. Over the past months he had been busy transcribing the jazz standard Tea for Two and was eager to show Art Tatum the fruits of his efforts. He sat down at the piano and carefully picked out the notes of his version of the classic composition for Tatum to listen to. Once he had finished, Tatum (now virtually blind) sat down at the piano and played his own version of the piece.

Its said that Horowitz was amazed by Tatums interpretation and implored him to tell him where he could find the score he had used, to which Tatum replied: Oh, I was just improvising. Horowitz later said in an interview that he never played Tea for Two in public again

That was a prime example of a plane on which it's deteriorating.

Because Classical and Jazz are on the same station?
