Bernstein Symphonic Suite from On the Waterfront
Copland Lincoln Portrait
Brahms Symphony No 1 in C minor

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

Bernstein’s gritty On the Waterfront Suite is one of the great symphonic portraits of New York, while Copland’s stirring Lincoln Portrait, which the Cincinnati orchestra premiered in 1942, employs the great President’s writings, performed by narrator Charles Dance, in music of immense dignity and nobility.

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