The Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival are delighted to invite you to enjoy this wonderful new interpretation by the SNJO of one of the most universally popular children’s classics Peter & the Wolf.
The Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival invite you to enjoy new jazz interpretations of two popular classical works: Prokofiev’s Peter & the Wolf and Saint-Saens’ Carnival of the Animals.
Having cast transformational brilliance over Mozart’s 9th piano concerto, how would the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra, directed by saxophonist Tommy Smith and guest pianist Makoto Ozone, handle these two much-loved popular classics? In the event they pulled off a double bill that combined virtuosity and ingenuity with unadulterated theatricality.
The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra were once again tonight pushing the boundaries of what many people would expect a Jazz Orchestra to be playing, as two classical works were given new interpretations: “Peter and The Wolf” by SNJO founder/director Tommy Smith, and “Carnival of the Animals” by internationally credited musician and composer Makoto Ozone.
The SNJO are delighted to invite audiences of all ages to enjoy wonderful new interpretations of two of the most universally popular children’s classics Peter & the Wolf and Carnival of the Animals.
