Piano Greats - Martin James Bartlett plays Gershwin


Vivid. Spirited. Globe-trotting.

Who’s on stage

Martin James Bartlett, an exciting young pianist you might recognise from BBC Young Musician of the Year – he was a finalist in 2012 and won in 2014.

What they’re playing

A musical odyssey from 17th century France to 20th century America, via Spain and Argentina. The elegant baroque stylings of Jean-Philippe Rameau and François Couperin give way to the vivid, impressionist sounds of Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel. Enrique Granados and Alberto Ginastera add some spicy Latin flair before George Gershwin’s jazzy favourite Rhapsody in Blue closes the show.
