Paul Lewis and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra

In 1950s Manhattan, Bernstein’s electrifying dance rhythms punch and kick across the hot city streets. A world away, a composer in exile creates a masterpiece that’s part-symphony, part-ballet, and all Rachmaninov. And in between, Liverpool’s own piano superstar Paul Lewis salutes jazz-age America in Copland’s Piano Concerto and George Gershwin’s irresistible Rhapsody in Blue.
