About

Recorded at the annual summer concert of the Berlin Philharmonic at the Waldbühne in Berlin 2003, this DVD captures the atmosphere of an open-air Gershwin night in full while also allowing a closer look at the musicians and the conductor. With an audience of over 20,000 one of the world’s best orchestras played the popular music of George Gershwin, including the famous Rhapsody in Blue and the popular film music suite An American in Paris.

Conducted by Seiji Ozawa – one of the longstanding stars in the classical world - the Berlin Philharmonic was joined by jazz pianist Marcus Roberts and his Trio, whose album Gershwin for Lovers stayed in the Top 10 on Billboard’s jazz chart for half a year. Together they created a magical fusion of classical music and jazz bringing an imaginative mix of styles into the swing of Gershwin’s music.

In the bonus film Seiji Ozawa and Marcus Roberts talk about Gershwin and their music making.
