Gershwin shook the musical world with his now iconic jazz-infused Rhapsody in Blue. Shostakovich “celebrated” the Soviet authorities with a populist symphony that shakes its fist in irony. Hear also Gershwin’s rarely played Second Rhapsody in the WSO debut of exciting pianist Sara Davis Buechner.

Alexander Mickelthwate, conductor
