    Americano! Gershwin, Bernstein, Barber, and Williams | Bristol Concert Orchestra
    April Fredrick, Bristol Concert Orchestra, Stefan Hofkes
    St George's Bristol Bristol BS1 5RR
    United Kingdom

    Like an extra strong Americano, this concert is overflowing with some of the best music from across the pond: Two offerings from Samuel Barber with his famous and poignant Adagio for Strings, and the lesser-known, but gloriously lush, rhapsody for voice and orchestra Knoxville: Summer of 1915 set to words of James Agee mix with the sparkling vitality of Bernstein's Overture to Candide in the first half.

    To follow, Gershwin’s irrepressibly jazzy An American in Paris and – for an out of this world finish – the epic music from Star Wars penned by John Williams (far from the only music in tonight’s to have found fame on the silver screen!).

    There will be a retiring collection for The Benjamin Pritchard Foundation (BeMoreBen).

    Adagio for Strings
    Samuel Barber (1910-1981)
    Knoxville: Summer of 1915, for soprano and orchestra
    Samuel Barber (1910-1981)
    An American in Paris
    George Gershwin (1898-1937)
    Star Wars Suite
    John Williams (1932-)
    Overture from Candide
    Leonard Bernstein (1918-1990)
