Among the most popular works of the American repertoire are Barber’s Adagio for Strings and Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue. In a return engagement with the OSM, pianist Charles Richard-Hamelin performs Gershwin’s powerful jazz- and pop-inspired work. Written at the same time, the music from Shostakovich’s ballet The Golden Age relates the adventures of a Soviet football team visiting the West for the first time. A case of culture shock!

Barber, Adagio for Strings
Gershwin, Rhapsody in Blue, for piano and orchestra
Shostakovich, The Golden Age, op. 22 (excerpts)
