Enjoy the music from American visionaries. Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring, represents the quintessential “American sound.” Rich in wide-open intervals, it captures the essence of American ideals, filled with endless possibilities. The work’s finale is a set of variations on the Shaker tune, Simple Gifts. Copland’s lyrical Clarinet Concerto, written for Benny Goodman, infuses swing elements with Brazilian folk music. Works by Gershwin and Bernstein incorporate virtuoso jazz instrumentalists into the orchestra. Philip Glass’ Overture for 2012 commemorates the bicentennial of the War of 1812.
