TIME: 8:00 PM till 8:00 PM

Gershwin: Piano Concerto in F
Borodin: Symphony Nr 2

Conductor/ Soloist: Wayne Marshall

A surprising and exciting choice of two great works, which demonstrate both composers endeavouring to transcend their respective popular music culture to symphonic heights. While Borodin shows his admiration of the great heroic past of Russia, capturing its essence and that of Russian folk music in his work, Gershwin cultivates his American vernacular – jazz.

LOCATION: Teatru Manoel, Valletta
