Jane Rutter and Simon Tedeschi play Gershwin, and glamourous pieces from early 20th century Paris
Jane Rutter stamps Gershwin’s classics with her own luscious, exuberant and sensous style, joined by the dynamic Adelaide Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Sean O’Boyle. EMBRACEABLE YOU is available from 21 April at all good music stores and abcshop.com.au.
Jane Rutter is one of Australia’s most enduring and much-loved musicians, and is one of the few classical flautists in the world with the ability to cross over successfully into jazz and pop. The Weekend Australian has lauded her as: “a classical siren in whose hands the flute becomes an instrument of seduction and sensual pleasure.”
On EMBRACEABLE YOU, Rutter applies her uniquely intoxicating style to the much-loved classics of Gershwin, from the romantic idealisation of The Man I Love, to the breezy A Foggy Day. Rutter injects her own energetic phrasing on ‘S Wonderful, her own hypnotic lilt into Summertime, and her own sense of erotic temptation into It Ain’t Necessarily So.
