Rhapsody In Blue

8:00 PM
Chicago Symphony Orchestra
Tuesday, July 29, 2014

James Conlon, conductor
Kevin Cole, piano

Pianist Kevin Cole fires up Gershwin’s timeless Rhapsody in Blue as part of James Conlon’s latest program of rollicking overtures and dances. The comedy of Nicolai’s The Merry Wives of Windsor, Weber’s Oberon and J. Strauss Jr.’s Die Fledermaus lend frivolity to their overtures, while Mendelssohn’s Hebrides overture—a standalone concert piece instead of an introduction to an opera—transports you to the shores of Scotland. Dances by the Viennese masters are contrasted with the Czech furiant rhythms in Schulhoff’s Scherzo.
