NEW YORK STORIES with Adam Gopnik

Lara Downes and essayist Adam Gopnik come together to make an evening of music about New York City: its anthems, atmosphere, and ambitions.


From Leonard Bernstein's New York, New York to Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue - from Billie Holiday's Harlem to Scott Joplin's Wall Street, Downes plays music that captures the special spirit of the city, while Gopnik speaks his mind -- and reads from the masters -- about what Manhattan means. A special evening of city conversation and cross-talk, in notes and in words.
