Copland, Billy the Kid Suite
You can almost smell the gun smoke.
Copland took his innate ability to
capture the spirit of America and
focused it on the Old West. You
can almost smell the gunsmoke.
Chesky, Violin Concerto No. 2
Michael Ludwig, violin
Our 2012–2013 Composer’s Award
recipient David Chesky brings us the
street sounds and subway rhythms of
New York City with all the grit and chaos of city life.
Bernstein, Dances from On the Town
Feel the pulsating energy of 1944-era New York City.
The Broadway musical featured great music, singing, and dancing. Leonard Bernstein felt—and we agree—that his music stands on its own as a concert selection.
Gershwin, Symphonic Suite from Porgy & Bess
Experience the jazz and blues of Catfish Row.
George Gershwin’s jazz- and blues-flavored melodies served as the foundation of this classic American opera.
