“The Piano Concerto No. 2 in F minor, Op. 21, is a piano concerto composed by Frédéric Chopin in 1829. Chopin wrote the piece before he had finished his formal education, at around 20 years of age. It was first performed on 17 March 1830, in Warsaw, Poland, with the composer as soloist. It was the second of his piano concertos to be published (after the Piano Concerto No. 1), and so was designated as “No. 2″, even though it was written first.”

The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis perform the music of four pioneering giants of jazz—Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie, John Coltrane, and Charles Mingus—in Duke, Dizzy, ‘Trane & Mingus: Jazz Titans. Duke, Dizzy, ‘Trane, and Mingus singularly pursued ancestral music, particularly from Africa and Latin America, and used their discoveries to broaden the horizons of their artistry and create new terrain for jazz. In this concert, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis play selections from Ellington’s Latin American Suite and Virgin Islands Suite; Coltrane’s Olé Coltrane and Africa Brass; Mingus’ Tijuana Moods; and various pieces from Gillespie’s early Afro-Cuban era through his later work with the United Nations band, showing his evolution from Afro-Cuban to a more expansive Afro-Latin idiom. The JLCO illuminates the historically important rhythmic distinctions, chant-based melodies, and modal soundscapes created as a result of these albums that forever changed the conception of the boundaries of jazz.
