Symphony No. 5

The spirit of America courses through this evening’s programme, opening with Aaron Copland’s stirring tribute to Abraham Lincoln, a symphonic work in the grand manner interspersed with extracts from the 16th US President’s addresses and correspondence, read here with his customary elegance by French film actor Lambert Wilson. The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra is here in its homeland, having premiered the work in 1942. We are then ferried away to Leonard Bernstein’s sizzling soundtrack for Elia Kazan’s On the Waterfront. The concert closes with a composer who had a huge influence on Lenny: Johannes Brahms. La Seine Musicale welcomes the CSO, one of the USA’s longest-established symphony orchestras, for this marquee event.
