Mozart to Monk is a unique and highly entertaining educational program featuring music from the various periods of western classical music, and for each, a corresponding modern American jazz piece that highlights the common bonds of these two important musical genres.
Clarinetist Russ Becker and guitarist John Birt speak about and perform representative works dating from Medieval times right up through our modern era. The duo features important works by classical composers such as Bach, Mozart, Schubert, Stravinsky and others as well as jazz composers Duke Ellington, John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk, Dave Brubeck and others.
