The Cleveland Orchestra presents Rhapsody in Blue: James Gaffigan and Kirill Gerstein
In the era leading up to World War II, many composers escaped the tumult of the European political climate for the sunny skies, palm trees, and safe American oasis of Hollywood. This program explores the work of three of these composers — Arnold Schoenberg, Béla Bartók, and Bernard Herrmann — paired with Gershwin’s ever-popular Rhapsody in Blue in its original jazz band version.
