BPO and Alain Lefevre: American in Paris

[CLASSICAL] The most famous themes from George Gershwin’s 1928 symphonic poem are as firmly embedded in our collective cultural memory as any other 20th-century music, underpinned there by their use in film, television, everywhere. And of course, An American in Paris is a staple of symphonic repertoires—as is Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring, which is also on the program at Kleinhans this weekend. But most people know these pieces from their uses outside the concert hall, evidence that great art is indeed part of our everyday lives. Joining the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra and conductor JoAnn Falletta is the spectacular Canadian pianist Alain Lefevre, who will also play Michael Colgrass’s As quiet as… and Andre Mathieu’s Concerto No. 3 “De Quebec.”
