Stephanie Trick & Paolo Alderighi - Classic Jazz in Four Hands

At St John's Smith Square

Westminster, London, SW1 3HA

Flying in from the USA to play this EFG London Jazz Festival Concert in the beautiful St Johns Smith Square in Westminster, come two  brilliant, classically  trained  and  outstanding  stride,  boogie  and  blues  pianists.

Stephanie Trick and Paolo Alderighi have justifiably built a world wide reputation not only as brilliant musicians but also as superb entertainers. Audiences across the globe stand in awe of their musicianship and expertise.

Following sold out concerts at The Other Palace on the 2016 London JazzFestival; in the following year’s Steinway Piano Festival and two more London concerts in 2018 at Pizza Express Dean Street, it’s a welcome return to the U.K. for these two celebrated world-wide performers. 

Playing on two pianos and also as four hands on one piano,  Stephanie and Paolo‘s concert will embrace not only music by piano masters including Scott Joplin, Jelly Roll Morton, Fats Waller, James P.Johnson and Art Tatum among others, but also music from the great American Song Book of Cole Porter and George Gershwin plus more recent works by Britain’s  Jule Styne and Lennon & McCartney

 

*St Johns Smith Square audiences are guaranteed a close up view from every seat in the house via JBGB Events unique “KeyboardCam” which projects the musicians hands onto screens behind the pianos so everyone gets a perfect view.*

 
 

Stephanie and Paolo are an inspiration. Such back-and-forth! Individually they are marvellous , but together their 4-handed stride is just remarkable.” -  Dick Hyman

 
 
 
Performance 7.30pm
Tickets £30, £20, £15, £10
 
 

JBGB Events London Jazz Festival 2019 London Jazz Gigs

“Just two years ago, we persuaded the wonderful music venue St John’s Smith Square - previously the exclusive preserve of great classical music, to allow a JBGB Events presentation. Our concerts with the Clare Teal Mini- Big Band and a celebration of Ella Fitzgerald’s Centenary with Liane Carroll and Claire Martin, were musical triumphs and sold out events.
 
We returned last year with more from Liane and Claire plus Joe Stilgoe and his Mighty Big Band with two packed houses of happy satisfied customers.
 
So with thanks to St John’s, we return in 2019 with three days of EFG London Jazz Festival Concerts. Classic Jazz for Four Hands Piano with Stephanie Trick and Paolo Alderighi; The Voices Of Jazz with VoCollective, Etcetera and The Swingles, climaxing with the Music Of Gil Evans , the greatest jazz orchestrator, with music from his Miles Ahead album and the complete Porgy and Bess Suite embracing the authentic original orchestrations courtesy of his son Miles Evans
 
We hope you will enjoy this feast of jazz across November 22.23.24”
