• Overview

    The New Jersey Symphony performs a world premiere from Daniel Bernard Roumain and George Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess, with Daniil Trifonov joining to close out the season with Gershwin’s Concerto in F.

    American music swings into summer with hits from Gershwin’s pathbreaking opera, Porgy and Bess. Letting their instruments do the singing, the New Jersey Symphony soars through “Summertime,” “It Ain’t Necessarily So” and other glories of Gershwin’s masterpiece. Only one way to top that: superstar pianist Daniil Trifonov playing Brahms with the New Jersey Symphony last season was a revelation, so we are thrilled at his return to wrap the season with a bang in Gershwin’s dance-filled Concerto in F. The New Jersey Symphony premieres an all-new commission from Resident Artistic Catalyst Daniel Bernard Roumain. A master storyteller, DBR will continue to wow New Jersey audiences with his genre-bending music.
