    Four Rhapsodies - Gershwin & Enescu

    Vox Ama Deus

    300 S. Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA 19102
    • Friday January 10th 2020, 8:00pm to 10:30pm

    Peter Donohoe, piano

    George Gershwin:
    Cuban Overture

    An American in Paris
    Rhapsody in Blue
    George Enescu:
    Romanian Rhapsody No. 1 in A

    Our ever-popular January concert continues as the season’s joyful celebration of Gershwin works, occasionally augmented with works by near-contemporary composers. This year the stage is shared with another George, the beloved Romanian composer George Enescu (whose two rhapsodies are based on traditional Romanian folk tunes). Both Gershwin rhapsodies, brilliantly performed by internationally renowned British piano virtuoso Peter Donohoe, are featured, along with other Gershwin favorites, Variations on “I Got Rhythm,” Cuban Overture and An American in Paris. Order your tickets early, as this concert regularly sells out!
    Running time: 2 hours 30 minutes, including intermission

    This concert sponsored by Mr. & Mrs. Henry B. du Pont Smith
