Thibaudet declares, "If you don't swing, you don't play the Concerto in F." The work, which he recorded for a Gershwin-themed disc with Marin Alsop and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, and which he will perform July 13 with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra at Ravinia, showcases the composer in two worlds, classical and jazz. Read more at CSO Sounds & Stories
