£ 18.00

Gershwin Concerto in F
Gershwin Rhapsody in Blue
Phillip Glass 
Hoedown from Rodeo

Viv McLean piano

Viv McLean returns to perform Gershwin’s Piano Concerto in F, a jazzy, optimistic, richly-textured work packed full of fabulous tunes and toe-tapping rhythms. It was commissioned by Walter Damrosch, conductor of the New York Symphony Orchestra, the day after he had heard the premiere of Rhapsody in Blue, which is also part of this programme. Philip Glass’s breakthrough work, music for the iconic film Mishima, and Copland’s lively and evocative work Hoe Down complete this distinctively American programme.
