Jack Gibbons Plays Gershwin & Gibbons

Jack Gibbons Plays Gershwin & Gibbons


The acclaimed pianist and composer Jack Gibbons, whose highly popular annual summer Oxford concerts have been running without a break since 1988, makes a rare spring visit to Oxford with the second of two Easter concerts. Described by Classic FM as “one of the world’s greatest Gershwin exponents” Gibbons recreates the extraordinary world of George Gershwin through his authentic reconstruction of the virtuoso piano style that made Gershwin’s playing legendary at New York high society parties in the 1920s and 30s. In addition Gibbons’ programme will contain four of his own recent compositions, including Solace,  Nocturne Op.93, and his folk-inspired Appalachian Fancy.

  • To listen to Gibbons' performances is to marvel afresh at his astonishing virtuosity, his rare control of the music's rhythmic vigour and his supreme relish for its melodic richness... Gershwin does not come more exhilarating than this.

  • Jack Gibbons is renowned for his skills as a piano virtuoso. What is less well known, perhaps, is that he is also a composer of distinction... Every song [of Gibbons] was a tour de force, each imbued with a radiant glow.
