A Memo from the Maestro: Leonard Bernstein, Dave Brubeck, and The Beatles — geniuses of 20th-century popular music, who truly bridged the gap between Jazz, Classical, and Pop. Come celebrate their artistry with Dave’s son, trombonist and composer Chris Brubeck — a great classical/jazz musician in his own right — as he makes his LSO debut in his own Concerto, along with suave symphonic renderings of his father’s greatest hits. We then feature a rare and classy symphonic tribute to The Beatles by that a legend of American pop music, the elegant Henry Mancini. We’ll wrap things up with – fresh off the controversial Bradley Cooper film Maestro – the LSO’s performance of Bernstein’s magnificent “Symphonic Dances” and “Mambo” from his immortal “popular opera,” WEST SIDE STORY, which will move and amaze you.
