Parker Plays Gershwin

August 2 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Lina González-Granados makes her Minnesota Orchestra debut in this concert focused on music that both drew from and canonized the sounds of the Roaring Twenties. Two works from George Gershwin highlight the program, including his Concerto in F for solo piano and orchestra, which will be performed by Jon Kimura Parker, and a selection from his famed opera Porgy and Bess. Two pieces inspired by the sights, scenes and sounds of this incredible decade round out this program: John Harbison’s Remembering Gatsby, a 1985 composition inspired by F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Jazz Age short story collection and Darius Milhaud’s Le Bœuf sur le toit, conceived as incidental music for Charlie Chaplin’s silent films.
