NJArts.net previews the New Jersey Symphony’s season opening performances with Aaron Diehl
NJArts.net’s Courtney Smith sat down with jazz pianist and composer Aaron Diehl to discuss his upcoming performance of Still’s Out of the Silence and Ellington’s New World A-Comin' with the New Jersey Symphony, and how he plans to convey the meaning of these pieces to the audience.
When it comes to the approach to the instrument and the sound, I think about what the music is trying to convey and what kind of emotive qualities I’m trying to communicate ... I think there are just significant differences, not even in regard to genre, but in terms of how I’m trying to express this music.
