Bernstein plays Rhapsody in Blue

Leonard Bernstein conducts the New York Philharmonic and performs on the piano George Gershwin’s iconic Rhapsody in Blue.  Gershwin wrote music that brought jazz onto the orchestral concert stage.  Bernstein really got that orchestra swinging!  One of the best performances of this work I’ve heard.  17 minutes.
