Gershwin’s Rhapsody In Blue

Saturday, November 4, 2017 7:30PM


Gershwin’s legendary work revolutionized classical music with its jazzy riffs, clarinet wails, and blue notes. Symphony favorite Kirill Gerstein, hailed by The New York Times as “one of the most respected pianists of his generation” stuns not only with this epic work, but also Schoenberg’s – a rare and special two-concerto program. A powerful theatrical presentation adds a stunning visual dimension.
