Jazz At Lincoln Center Orchestra & LSO: The Jungle

May

30

Saturday

Wynton Marsalis paints a musical portrait of New York City with The Jungle, performed by the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Sir Simon Rattle.

A brash fanfare announces the Big Show of the opening movement, before were taken on a journey through the sounds of the city. Theres ramshackle ragtime, vibrant jazz, and a meander through Afro-Cuban districts. The symphony captures the city in all its energy, beauty and bleakness and more than anything, its about the shared humanity that the metropolis symbolises.

New York City is the most fluid, pressure-packed, and cosmopolitan metropolis the modern world has ever seen, says the Pulitzer Prizewinning composer. The speed, freedom, and intensity of our relationships to each other and to the city itself forces us onto a collective superhighway unlike any other in our country.
