Nashville Symphony | Giancarlo Guerrero, conductor | Joseph Alessi, trombone


Karol Szymanowski: Concert Overture, Opus 12
Chick Corea: Concerto for Trombone | Live Recording
Sergei Prokofiev: Suite from Romeo and Juliet

New York Philharmonic principal trombonist Joseph Alessi — a veritable rock star among American brass players — takes center stage with a work written for him by the late, great jazz legend Chick Corea, premiered with Giancarlo Guerrero in São Paolo. Szymanowski’s Concert Overture is an exuberant concert opener, and Giancarlo ties it all together with Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet Suite, which perfectly captures the drama and heartbreak of Shakespeare’s immortal story.
