“Swing Symphony” with Simon Rattle and Wynton Marsalis

It was a very special summit: the joint appearance of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, led by star trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, and the Berliner Philharmoniker with chief conductor Sir Simon Rattle. The occasion was the world premiere of Marsalis’s Swing Symphony, which demonstrates just how well the worlds of jazz and classical music can complement and enrich each other. The programme also included: Igor Stravinsky’s ballet music Petrushka.
