The New York Connection

The Chrysler Building and the New York skyline


For more than a century, American composers have paid tribute to New York City—its tall buildings, crowds, traffic, noise, energy--and the diversity of the people who live and work there.

In this hour, a celebration of the Big Apple in works by Gershwin, Carpenter, Copland, Bernstein and more.
