Hollywood noir meets Paris with Jazz
Samuel BARBER Adagio for Strings
Henri TOMASI Concerto for Trumpet and Orchestra
Kurt WEILL Symphony No.2
George GERSHWIN An American in Paris
Asher Fisch conductor
Brent Grapes trumpet
Helicopters cut through the mist in Platoon and Gene Kelly steams up your glasses in An American in Paris – we begin and end with music that defined two iconic Hollywood blockbusters. Kurt Weill’s Symphony No.2 is an absolute gem, embracing both wry satire of relentless energy and the sound of his popular Broadway works. WASO’s own trumpet superstar Brent Grapes will dazzle you with Henri Tomasi’s virtuosic Trumpet Concerto, which traverses an enthralling musical landscape from Hollywood noir, to French impressionism and jazz.

Our 2021 Season is planned to be delivered in Phase 5 or 6 of the Western Australian Government’s easing of COVID-19 restrictions. That means we are planning to present our events with no physical distancing required.
We will do everything in our power to present the program listed but, as we all know, we may have to vary the repertoire or artists should Government guidelines or travel restrictions change. If that happens, we will let you know. For more information, read our 2021 Program Changes page.
