Grab your passport and travel to the streets of Paris in the jazz age, filled with blaring taxi horns and bustling crowds. George Gershwin’s An American in Paris will delight you today just as it did audiences at its debut. From the same era, Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G is also deeply infused with jazz idioms and harmonies. The program concludes with Schubert’s majestic Symphony No. 9, nicknamed “The Great C Major.”
