The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Louis Langree, presents Transatlantic. This CD features the composers George Gershwin, Edgard Varese and Igor Stravinsky and their innovative works for Orchestra.
The recording of An American in Paris featured on Disc 1 is the world premiere recording of the original unabridged version by George Gershwin. Edgard Varese came to America from Paris - the first piece he would pen is Ameriques. Igor Stravinsky came to Music Hall in 1925 and conducted the Symphony in C, only the second time that this piece was performed. Stravinsky praised the discipline of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and the players’ interest in his music.
