LUCO: An American in Paris!
This program features a triptych of some of the most fiercely original and independent musical thinkers of the 20th Century.  Gershwin and Bernstein's ability to merge the great American Jazz tradition into the orchestral idiom is unparalleled and contributed in creating a musical aesthetic that was quintessentially of the "New World."   Prokofiev was himself a rebel who spent his entire career as an outcast and musical rebel.  In 1918, he emigrated to the USA until 1935 and became known for his great ballets and piano compositions.  While world-War II was still raging, he composed his greatest symphony, No.5 Op.100 in 1944.  He described it as:
"a hymn to free and happy Man, to his mighty powers, his pure and noble spirit.  I cannot say that I deliberately chose this theme. It was born in me and clamored for expression. The music matured within me. It filled my soul."


Leonard Bernstein:  Overture to Candide

Sergei Prokofiev:  Symphony No. 5

Christophe Chagnard, conductor
