Paris through the prism of American jazz. New York City in the 50s, gangs fighting in the streets. Kirill Petrenko and Diana Damraau ring in the new with the accent on American energy—Gershwin’s An American in Paris, Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances from West Side Story, and a little Cole Porter, too. Damrau has been known to sparkle in this repertoire. —L.J.
Also on the program: works by Cole Porter, Carl Loewe, and Kurt Weill.
