Rhapsody in Blue the way Gershwin would have heard it in this special performance. The BSO and Music Director Marin Alsop team up with pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet to perform Gershwin’s beloved
Rhapsody in Blue, heard in the original orchestration for the Paul Whiteman Band along with the composer’s Concerto in F. The most famous jazz group of the 1920s, the Paul Whiteman Band originally commissioned
Rhapsody in Blue, and this performance offers the chance to hear the work in a unique original light.
