The Berlin Phil Series: An American in Berlin

Music by American composers is on the programme for the second instalment of the Berlin Phil Series. In a range of chamber formations, Noah Bendix-Balgley, 1st concertmaster of the Berliner Philharmoniker, and other members of the orchestra play pieces by George Gershwin, John Cage, and the composer Amy Beach, among others. Symphonic dances from Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story are heard under the baton of chief conductor Kirill Petrenko, and his predecessor Sir Simon Rattle inspires the orchestra to a spectacular performance of Scott Bradley’s soundtrack to a Tom and Jerry cartoon.
