About

The second part of the American series initiated by Leonard Slatkin live at the Auditorium de Lyon!

For his second inroad in American music, Leonard Slatkin gives a large outline of 20th century music, between the avant-guard (Ives, Rorem, McTee), Broadway (Gershwin) and Harlem (Ellington). The highlight of the concert will be the Symphony No. 2 by Leonard Bernstein. Composed in 1949 and adapted from a poem by William H. Auden, the Symphony is the first great masterpiece of the author of West side story, who conceived it for orchestra and piano.
