Program Notes

Gershwin An American in Paris

Apr22
7:30 PM
Barber, Bates, W. Schuman, Gershwin
Tuesday, April 22, 2014

Capturing the glamorous excitement of 1920s Paris, Gershwin’s An American in Paris is a modern American treasure. It is preceded by colorful, luxuriant masterpieces by his successors Samuel Barber and William Schuman. American violinist Anne Akiko Meyers, whose playing is “unspooled with impressive refinement, emotional freedom and tonal depth” (New York Times), gives the Chicago premiere of the Violin Concerto by CSO Mead Composer-in Residence Mason Bates, one of today’s hottest young composers.

Postconcert CD signings with Violinist Anne Akiko Meyers on Thursday April 17th, Saturday 19th and Tuesday 22th in Grainger Ballroom.
