    Banda Sinfónica Portuguesa welcomes the beginning of summer with American rhythms. The starting point is Tchaikovsky’s improbable Nutcracker, transformed into a swinging suite. Gershwin's music is much closer to swing, and what we're going to hear is a medley of famous songs by the brilliant North American composer, in an arrangement that emphasises the trombones. The fascination with tropical countries is something we understand very well, so it’s no wonder that it also captivates Dutch composers like Arie Malando, who made a career as a tango composer (!), and Kees Vlak, who dedicated one of his works to three famous beaches in Rio de Janeiro. The wonderful Brazilian city was the setting of the animated film Rio, and BSP performs a suite inspired by the fantastic soundtrack of John Powell.
