On the Waterfront

Thu 24/01/2019 19:00 - 21:00
Tickets: 37.00-7.00 €

Introduction

Gossip, madness, jazz and rhumba add up to an explosive recipe that requires the talents of Peruvian conductor Miguel Harth-Bedoya to get the Latin American spices right. Aaron Copland’s Clarinet Concerto was composed for Benny Goodman, the king of swing, and is interpreted here by Martin Fröst. The evening’s concert culminates with a symphonic suite from the Marlon Brando film On the Waterfront.
