About

150 musicians came from Cuba, Norway, Poland, Britain, Syria, Germany, Bulgaria and the USA to contribute their "spirits of music" to an unusual concert event uniting classical and world music.

Bobby McFerrin stands like no other for the reconciliation of two musical worlds that are not as different from one another as they might seem.

McFerrin plays many parts, excelling in all of them. Alongside his remarkable solo improvisations he brought a charming and unconventional manner to his conducting of the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, one of Germany's most renowned orchestral ensembles.

The British violinist Nigel Kennedy is just as much at home with pop or jazz as with the classics and joins McFerrin in a combined jazz improvisation to mark a highlight of the evening.

The Kuumba Singers present another highlight of the evening, picking up the traditions of African folk songs, spirituals and gospel.

Recorded live at the Market Square Leipzig, 15 June 2002.
