Akron Symphony Orchestra: Rhapsody in Blue
The 20’s and 30’s were a Golden Age in American music. It was an eclectic era that could inspire brilliant ‘classical’ works by Barber as well as the immortal jazzclassical hybrids of George Gershwin. The only composer to combine these two worlds as successfully as Gershwin was Leonard Bernstein, whose West Side Story is an unrivaled masterpiece of American musical theater.
