Edgar Meyer and An American in Paris

Hailed by The New Yorker as “the most remarkable virtuoso in the relatively un-chronicled history of his instrument,” double-bassist Edgar Meyer joins the LPO for an exploration of works by American composers from past and present. Following the U.S.-premiere of a work by acclaimed young composer Adam Schoenberg, Edgar Meyer performs his own Double Bass Concerto No. 3 in E major. The program concludes with a final nod to great Americans in music: George Gershwin’s irresistible An American in Paris.
