Gershwin in New York
January 27, 2024 - January 28, 2024
After a rapturous reception at its Carnegie Hall debut, William Dawson’s Negro Folk Symphony, quickly disappeared into obscurity. This American masterpiece is only now starting to receive the attention it merits. Famed jazz pianist Marcus Roberts, along with NEA Jazz Master drummer Jason Marsalis and bassist Marty Jaffe, bring a modern interpretation to George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue. Samuel Barber, famous as the composer of Adagio for Strings, takes all the main elements of a traditional four-movement symphony and condenses them into one movement in his innovative Symphony No. 1.
