From THE JUNGLE
Performed by the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis and the National Symphony Orchestra of Romania
Conducted by Cristian Măcelaru
January 12, 2019
The National Symphony Orchestra of Romania, conducted by Cristian Măcelaru, joined forces with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis on its first visit to the United States. The JLCO has a proud and longstanding tradition of collaborating with orchestras from all over the world, and the NSOR has earned a reputation for delivering virtuosic performances of the highest level.
For the first time at Jazz at Lincoln Center, the orchestras performed Wynton Marsalis’ acclaimed original work, THE JUNGLE. Commissioned in 2017 for the 175th Anniversary of the New York Philharmonic, THE JUNGLE was originally performed to sold-out crowds for five nights straight.
THE JUNGLE is about what we see in our city today—the beautiful, the bleak, and the ever-present but often-overlooked commonalities of our shared humanity.
