Gershwin's Piano Concerto
Marin Alsop, Music Director
Kirill Gerstein, piano
Stravinsky // Suite from The Firebird (1919)
Gershwin// Concerto in F
Schumann // Symphony No. 2 in C Major
Under Marin Alsop’s baton, Stravinsky’s dazzling Firebird concludes with one of the most exalted finales in all of music. Gershwin’s Concerto in F is a blend of traditional classical forms and the freedom of American jazz. After a year without writing music, Schumann’s incredibly personal Second Symphony expresses his triumph over darkness.
