I'm really interested in these but have no idea where to go with the interest and what to check out as I can't find any useful source on the subject. I went to a performance of some of John Corigliano's work a year ago which was brilliant and had a jazz feel and Wikipedia tells me the following are jazz influenced classical pieces:
George Gershwin, Rhapsody in Blue
Claude Debussy, Golliwog's Cakewalk (from Children's Corner, 1908)
Igor Stravinsky's Ragtime for 11 instruments (1918)
Paul Hindemith, 1922 Suite für Klavier
Kurt Weill, Threepenny Opera (1928)
Maurice Ravel, Piano Concerto in G (1929–1931)
Ernst Krenek, Jonny spielt auf (1926)
Bruce Arnold, A Few Dozen (1955)
Elie Siegmeister, Clarinet Concerto (1956)
Darius Milhaud, La Création du monde (1923)
But apart from the ones like Gershwin I already know I can't find any reviews, recordings or recommendations of what to get or who to check out. Pop music is so much easier to get into as Classical snobism makes it pretty tough to be anything but clueless.
Does anyone here have knowledge of such things they'd share with me?
Thanks in advance to anyone who replies.
