Wynton Marsalis wrote a new work especially for this project, entitled Swing Symphony, which takes us on a musical journey through the history of jazz – something Wynton Marsalis sees as inseparable from dance: “Jazz is dance music – and if you can’t dance to it, then it’s not jazz.” That evening in the Berlin Treptow Arena, the young dancers under the direction of choreographer Rhys Martin showed very impressively just how perfectly Marsalis’s Swing Symphony fulfils these requirements.
