ABOUT THIS CONCERT

Breezy tunes, breakneck pace and plenty of Jazz Age swagger make Gershwin’s Concerto a firm audience favorite, and Jean-Yves Thibaudet lends his individual style and interpretive flair to this much-loved masterpiece. Copland’s lively snapshot of a Mexico City dance hall, the familiar melodies of Porgy and Bess and music of Mexican-great Carlos Chávez complete this musical collage of color and exuberance.

Andrés Orozco-Estrada, conductor
