Buckle up for John Adams’ rhythmic Short Ride in a Fast Machine! Gershwin wrote of his Rhapsody in Blue, “I heard it as a sort of musical kaleidoscope of America – of our vast melting pot.” Known for its integration of jazz rhythms with classical music, is considered Gershwin’s most famous work. Copland’s Third Symphony is known as the essential American symphony that fuses his distinct “Americana” style of his ballets with the symphonic form. His famous Fanfare for the Common Man is woven throughout the work.

American pianist William Wolfram was a silver medalist at both the William Kapell and the Naumburg International Piano Competitions and a bronze medalist at the prestigious Tchaikovsky Piano Competition in Moscow.

Wolfram has appeared with many of the greatest orchestras of the world and has developed a special reputation as the rare concerto soloist who is also equally versatile and adept as a recitalist, accompanist and chamber musician. In all of these genres, he is highly sought after for his special focus on the music of Franz Liszt and Beethoven and is a special champion for the music of modernist 20th century American composers.
