The unmissable UK premiere performance of Wynton Marsalis' symphonic meditation on the evolution of swing, Swing Symphony (Symphony No 3). The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis share the stage with the London Symphony Orchestra, conducted by the award-winning Chief Conductor of the Berliner Philharmoniker, Sir Simon Rattle.

The first half of the programme features the London Symphony Orchestra performing Rachmaninov’s dramatic Symphonic Dances – written in the US in 1940 yet infused with nostalgia for his Russian homeland.
