'It's All Music Folks!': Richard Michael -- Jazz Piano
Pianist Richard Michael performs well known songs and explains how they were composed in the opening event of the Haddo Arts Festival digital programme.
Opening the Haddo Arts Festival 2020 Online, Richard Michael asks:
Did you know that “The Lark Ascending”, “Take 5” and “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” all use the same scale?
Or that Vivaldi and George Gershwin used the same chord sequences over and over again?
In “It’s All Music Folks”, pianist Richard Michael performs a variety of well known tunes explaining how they were composed, and how the building blocks of music are the same whatever the genre.
