Arthur and Lucas Jussen, pianists
and percussion. The program also includes Carme by Nicola Piovani.

U2 Joshua Tree Tour
Thirty years after its initial release, the band is on mega tour, performing the album live all over the world. The Joshua Tree was the fifth studio album by Irish rock band, produced by Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno, released in March 1987 on Island Records. Inspired by American tour experiences, literature, and politics, U2 chose America as a theme for the record.  It topped the charts in more than 20 countries, became the fastest-selling album in British history, sold some 25 million copies  and won Grammy Awards for Album of the Year and Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal. In 2014, the album was deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" by the US Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the National Recording Registry. The tour, which began in Vancouver in May, will finish in Brazil in October. Stadio Olimpico,
