JOSHUA WEILERSTEIN conductor
AARON DIEHL piano  
NEW JERSEY SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

Classical, jazz and folk collide! Acclaimed jazz pianist Aaron Diehl offers a fresh improvisational take on Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, while Stravinsky’s The Firebird brings a Russian legend to life.

MILHAUD La création du Monde
French composer Milhaud heard jazz in Harlem during a 1922 visit and brought the sound back to Paris for this lively ballet based on African folk mythology. 

GERSHWIN Rhapsody in Blue
Gershwin called this iconic piece “a musical kaleidoscope of America, of our vast melting pot, of our national pep, of our blues, our metropolitan madness.” 

PRICE Piano Concerto (NJSO Premiere)
Florence Price was the first African-American female composer to be performed by major orchestras; her lush concerto skillfully blends classical and popular styles.  

STRAVINSKY Suite from The Firebird (1919)
Lavish, vibrant, iconic; tells the tale of the Firebird, whose power is brilliantly illustrated by the thrilling score.
