The world-renowned Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis returns to the Barbican and venues around East London in 2012, following on from their critically acclaimed residency in 2010 and taking the programme in exciting new directions.

Focusing on new commissions and collaborations, a highlight of the residency is the UK premiere of jazz legend Wynton Marsalis' symphonic meditation on the evolution of swing, Swing Symphony (Symphony No 3).

Marsalis' new composition will be performed by the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis and the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by the award-winning Chief Conductor of the Berliner Philharmoniker, Sir Simon Rattle.

The first half of the programme features the London Symphony Orchestra performing Rachmaninov’s dramatic Symphonic Dances – written in the US in 1940 yet infused with nostalgia for his Russian homeland.
