About the Event
Experience the enchanting melodies of classical music by three renowned American composers — Aaron Copland, Leonard Bernstein, and George Gershwin — in a highly‐anticipated concert at Milan's prestigious Auditorium Fondazione Cariplo. These talented musicians represent the diverse voices of twentieth‐century America, blending both popular and classical music genres. American Sounds showcases the rich variety of American music, ranging from musicals to ballet and symphonic poems. While Leonard Bernstein is often associated with the iconic musical West Side Story, this program delves into other works that capture the American spirit. Aaron Copland's collaboration with Martha Graham for Appalachian Spring demonstrates a deep appreciation for ballet, while Gershwin's symphonic poem showcases his imaginative prowess. Gershwin's An American in Paris, before it became a musical‐film by Vincent Minnelli, was a musical journey that allowed Gershwin to uncover the influences of his European counterparts, including Maurice Ravel. Join us for an unforgettable evening of music that celebrates the rich tapestry of American compositions.
