The Sydney Symphony and Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra

The Sydney Symphony and Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra

Wynton Marsalis and David Robertson celebrate the brash, brassy, razzle-dazzle of New York City.

A Parisian in America, Edgard Varèse was entranced by the tumultuous soundscape of New York. Calling for the biggest orchestra you’ll see all year, Amériques is a portrait of the city in all its thrilling chaos, complete with sirens and foghorns. It’s a true 20th-century masterpiece – an urban Rite of Spring.

Wynton Marsalis embodies the brilliance of American creativity. The trumpeter, composer and bandleader celebrates the incredible richness of jazz’s heritage, but always looks to the future.

The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra meets the Sydney Symphony Orchestra in Marsalis’s fourth symphony. A prowl through the concrete jungle from Spanish Harlem to Wall Street – it’s a love letter to the ‘brash, brassy, razzle-dazzle’ of New York.
