Concert Description

Composers Darius Milhaud and George Gershwin both found jazz in clubs and bars and swapped them for the concert hall. Here their two travelers trade places, as Gershwin’s homesick American strolls the streets of Paris and dodges taxis to the sound of the blues, while Milhaud’s Frenchman visits Times Square, Central Park, and Yankee Stadium.

Leonard Slatkin, Conductor
Michelle and Christina Naughton, piano
