    Emperor Concerto with David Deveau

    Ronald Feldman, Music Director
    David Deveau, piano

    George Gershwin: Girl Crazy Suite
    William Grant Still: Symphony No. 2, "Song of a New Race"
    Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 5, "Emperor"

    The LSO presents works by two important American composers alongside a Beethoven masterwork. Through his 1930 musical Girl Crazy, George Gershwin introduced the world to songs including "I Got Rhythm" and "Embraceable You;" Leroy Anderson’s orchestral suite features these and other from Gershwin’s Tin Pan Alley classic. A contemporary of Gershwin, William Grant Still—considered the "dean" of African-American composers—utilized jazz and blues harmonies to depict a vision of an integrated society in “Song of a New Race.” The program closes with Beethoven’s virtuosic “Emperor” Concerto, featuring famed Boston pianist David Deveau.
