The acclaimed pianist and composer Jack Gibbons has been performing his highly popular annual Oxford Summer Piano Series without a break since 1988. 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.
