NDR Radiophilharmonie, Schleswig-Holstein Festival

Grandioser Ritt durchs Grenzgebiet ... Gemeinsam mit der NDR Radiophilharmonie und der NDR Bigband waren sie [ Sabine und Wolfgang Meyer ]angetreten, um Kompositionen zu präsentieren, die irgendwo zwischen Broadway und Opernhaus ihren Ursprung haben. Gershwins "An American in Paris" kam zum Auftakt fast einer Kampfansage für den Abend gleich, der als "Hommage an Bennie Goodman" überschrieben war.
