Chick Corea Piano


Ellington Solitude
Gershwin Rhapsody in Blue
Price Symphony No. 1

Unless you were in New York City in 1924 for the premiere, you’ve never heard Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue like this. Jazz legend Chick Corea joins the hottest big band on the planet for this classic melting pot of American musical styles. Florence Price was the first African- American woman to have her work performed by a major U.S. orchestra. Yannick leads the Philadelphia Orchestra premiere of her Symphony No. 1, plus music by the legendary Duke Ellington. Admit it. You always knew Yannick was a hepcat at heart.
