<p> Fans of the late great American jazz pianist Oscar Peterson won’t want to miss a concert devoted to him at Chappell of Bond Street in London on 15 November. Acclaimed British jazz pianists Tom Cawley and James Pearson will chart a musical timeline through Peterson’s best-loved music, going from his early days to his heyday as one of the world’s most popular performers</p> ...
The evening concert will be preceded by a jazz piano workshop at 4pm. It’s led by James Pearson, who will let the audience and a group of young pianists from schools and conservatoires across London into the secrets of jazz piano and improvisation.
Bösendorfer, Oscar Peterson’s favourite make of piano, is supporting the concert.
Tickets to A Musical Portrait of Oscar Peterson are £10. Seating is limited, so reserve your place with Chappell now (places for the free-of-charge workshop must also be reserved).
If you like Oscar Peterson's style, you're likely to enjoy Gershwin too. Check out his 'Embraceable You' score which is featured in the scores section of the new issue No 68 of Pianist magazine! It's a gorgeous piece to learn and perform.
