Back by popular demand—both Gershwin (this time in the company of his mentor, Ravel, and his disciple of sorts, John Williams) and British virtuoso, Peter Donohoe, return to the Kimmel Center for a one-night "date" in the company of the Ama Deus Ensemble Orchestra and Maestro Radu. A glorious and exciting "fireworks" display, including Gershwin's first instrumental piece, "Rialto Ripples Rag", the Rhapsody in Blue and Second Rhapsody, and Catfish Row (from Porgy and Bess).

Also new this season, Maurice Ravel's Concerto in G, with its brightness and boundless energy, matches perfectly the blues and swing style of Gershwin.

And last but not least, the magic of John Williams' movie music (for which he got more than forty Oscar nominations!), topped by the Star Wars Trilogy medley.

Running Time: 2 hours 15 Minutes including one intermission.
