Symphony Orchestra of Milan Presents

“ Season 2023-24 | Symphony ”
All 'Auditorium of Milan, Friday 8 is Sunday March 10, 2024 the Chief Guest Conductor Alondra de la Parra will drive theMilan Symphony Orchestra in a concert "on the road", along the fascinating and varied paths of 20th century American music: from Aaron Copland is George Gershwin to Leonard 'Lenny' Bernstein, we will listen to three different voices that marked the sound worlds of 20th century America, characterized by the peculiar mix between popular music and classical music.

From musicals to ballets to symphonic poems, American musical culture has a wide variety of genres, well illuminated by the program on the poster, starting from the engaging atmospheres of Symphonic Dances created by Leonard Bernstein for the famous musical West Side Story (1957) to the orchestral suite Appalachian Spring of Aaron Copland, taken from the ballet of the same name that the composer wrote in 1944 – a piece that so clearly connotes the American spirit that it was chosen as the theme song for the historic CBS Reports news program.

At the end of the evening, another famous piece resulting from the imaginative power of George Gershwin, the symphonic poem An American in Paris, a musical account of the European journey undertaken by the artist to discover his masters, including Maurice Ravel. “The most modern music I have ever written” was defined by the composer himself, music which later became the basis of the homonym movie directed by Vincent Minnelli in 1951, An American in Paris, winner of six Oscar Awards.


Sunday's concert March 10th is inserted in packageA Day in the Auditorium' costing €59.
