The axis of the program dedicated to the legend of 20th century American music, Duke Ellington, will be the jazz suite Such Sweet Thunder, composed by the original composer inspired by the characters of William Shakespeare. However, there will also be other compositions that form the basis of 20th century American music.

Duke Ellington (1899-1974) is considered one of the most important musical personalities. He has won twelve Grammy Awards, including a lifetime achievement, and has been awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom and a special Pulitzer Prize.
