Other participants: Marcus Roberts · Roland Guerin · Jason Marsalis · Seiji Ozawa · Berliner Philharmoniker
Conducted by Seiji Ozawa – one of the longstanding stars in the classical world - the Berlin Philharmonic was joined by jazz pianist Marcus Roberts and his Trio, whose album Gershwin For Lovers stayed in the Top 10 on Billboard’s jazz chart for half a year. Together they created a magical fusion of classical music and jazz bringing an imaginative mix of styles into the swing of Gershwin’s music.
In the bonus film Seiji Ozawa and Marcus Roberts talk about Gershwin and their music making.
