"★★★★★ ''..this concert was one of Rattle’s best inventions.'' ( Financial Times)

Join Sir Simon Rattle and the London Symphony Orchestra for an All-American concert featuring gorgeous works from Gershwin, a little-known symphony from Roy Harris, and the exciting world premiere of John Adams' new work, ''Fenzy.''

Get a taste of the razzle-dazzle of the Roaring Twenties with fantasticly showy Gershwin overtures and a brilliant performance of Gershwin's jazzy ''Piano Concert in F'' played by award-winning soloist Kirill Gerstein. Plus, hear a rarely performed symphonic epic by American composer Roy Harris before the much-anticipated world premiere of John Adams' latest work. Commissioned by the LSO and dedicated to Sir Simon Rattle, Adams' new ''Frenzy,'' packs a hard-hitting punch in just 18 short minutes.

George Gershwin (arr Don Rose) - Overture: Let ‘em Eat Cake
George Gershwin (ed Timothy Freeze) - Piano Concerto in F
Roy Harris - Symphony No 3
John Adams - Frenzy (world premiere)
