RACHMANINOFF IN THE KEY OF JAZZ
A Classical Edge Concert

Nuvi Mehta, host
Jahja Ling, conductor
Kirill Gerstein, piano

American jazz influenced the world reaching all the way to Russia. Joined by jazz artists and the San Diego Symphony, virtuoso pianist Kirill Gerstein performs everything from jazz to excerpts from Sergei Rachmaninoff’s popular Third Piano Concerto. Dr. Charles Limb, a head and neck surgeon at Johns Hopkins, known through his popular TED talks, joins us to discuss the different ways the human brain functions when we create jazz as opposed to classical music!
