Peter Sparks, Kyle Horch, Iain Farrington (Art Deco Trio)

This CD is the debut recording by composer and pianist Iain Farrington’s Art Deco Trio, featuring 15 new instrumental arrangements with classical and jazz influences of Gershwin songs.

In 2012, Farrington played piano at the opening ceremony of the London Olympics in a comic performance of Chariots of Fire with Rowan Atkinson (as Mr Bean) and the LSO conducted by Sir Simon Rattle. His Beethoveniana – a rousing distillation of Beethoven’s nine symphonies into a seven-minute piece for 323 BBC orchestral musicians, the BBC Singers and two dancers – was a highlight of the, during the Corona lockdown, 2020 BBC Proms

The Art Deco Trio – Peter Sparks (clarinet), Kyle Horch (alto and soprano saxophone) and Iain Farrington (piano) – takes its name from the defining style of the Gershwin era, “blending elegance and clean lines with the exuberance and bold colours” of his distinctive signature.

The CD takes its title from Farrington’s “Fantasia” over five Gershwin standards imbued with infectious rhythmic energy and memorable melodies. First heard in shorter form at the 2018 BBC Proms, Gershwinicity is a dazzling celebration of one of the 20th century’s most beloved songwriters.

The tuneful material ranges from early hits like I’ll Build a Stairway to Paradise and The Man I Love to the late, enduring classics They All Laughed and Our Love is Here to Stay.

Gershwin’s stage masterpiece Porgy and Bess is represented by arrangements of Summertime and It Ain’t Necessarily So, alongside Broadway favourites (The Man I Love, I Got Rhythm) and rarities (Fidgety Feet, I’ve Got a Crush on You).

Iain Farrington’s arrangements of Holst’s Ode to Death – “the pick of the piece” (BBC Radio 3’s Record Review) – and Fauré’s Requiem were featured on In Remembrance (jpc 8737780). Praised by the British Music Society as “a very fine performance and recording in every respect”, MusicWeb International declared it “an album that will be of lasting value in the future”.
