Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra
  • Edinburgh International Festival

Two muscular celebrations of America launch a powerful programme from the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra under its inspirational Music Director Louis Langre.

Bernsteins gritty On the Waterfront Suite is one of the great symphonic portraits of New York, while Coplands stirring Lincoln Portrait, which the Cincinnati orchestra premiered in 1942, employs the great Presidents writings, performed by a narrator, in music of immense dignity and nobility.

Orchestra and conductor draw on their warm, dynamic relationship in the Beethovenian grandeur and might of Brahmss glorious First Symphony.
