A great American orchestra marks Leonard Bernstein's 100th-anniversary year with a concert of 20th century American classics that represent Bernstein in his multiple guises as composer, conductor and pianist.

The breathless exuberance of Bernstein's Candide overture is extended by Inon Barnatan in Gershwin's Concerto in F major, which filters the composer's popular jazz idiom through classical structures and Lisztian virtuosity.

Premiered by Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic in 1951, Ives's attractive Second Symphony melds European techniques with an all-American sound-world.
