Classics Meets Jazz for Piano arranged by Uwe Korn. For Piano, Piano/Keyboard. Piano. Book with CD. 88 pages. Schott Music #ED20177. Published by Schott Music (HL.49016809).

ISBN 3795758475. 9x12 inches.

This volume contains a wide selection of famous musical themes from Bach to Carl Orff. Some of them were originally written for the piano; most have had their scores carefully arranged to make them easy to play on the piano. Each piece is followed with a jazz interpretation, which can either be played alone or alongside the 'original' version. Perhaps this will show that the 'classics' are not all that far removed from jazz, and that music of earlier periods contains many of the essential characteristics of jazz. Doesn't Lully's 'Gavotte', for instance, contain one of the most famous jazz themes ever? The 'Blue Gavotte' may make this clearer. The theme from Mozart's Sonata in A major (K 331) doesn't require many rhythmic changes to give it a blues flavor ('Mozart Goes Blues'). The driving rhythm of the ostinato bass in Carl Orff's 'O Fortuna' would suit modern jazz-rock performers well, with a few small changes ('A Fortune for a Tune'). It is difficult to convey a jazz interpretation through musical notation alone, so a CD has been included – not to demonstrate the only possible interpretation, but to offer ideas and suggestions.

    This is a very fun book containing the original (or arranged) classical works followed by jazz arrangements. Jazz styles include swing, rag time, blues and salsa. I've enjoyed all of the pieces that I've read through so far. My daughter, an intermediate pianist, is having fun with "The...

    Barber's Swing" based on the Barber of Seville. I'm a bit more advanced and am loving "Moldau at Night" based on Smetana's "Vltava." There is a great CD included with the book that contains all of the pieces.
