A Renewal of Spirit
June 27 @ 7:30 pm
Classic Series IV
Dvorak: Carnival Overture
Copland: Symphony No. 3
The Dvorak piece is part of a trilogy of overtures with nature, life and love as the central themes. It is a high-spirited overture, somewhat organic in the development of the themes, as they seem to evolve expressing a happy, joyous time of life.
Aaron Copland is most noted for his ballets such as Appalachian Spring, Billy the Kid, and Rodeo, as well as music for movies. Yet this symphony, his best known, is based upon the unique sound of open intervals and the classic Fanfare for the Common Man. More than any other work, Symphony no. 3 uses themes, harmonies, and characteristic intervals that are unmistakably Copland. Each movement has a signature Copland theme, especially the final movement, based upon his Fanfare for the Common man. This concert, with its heroic overtone comes to full celebration in this final movement of the season.
Julian Schwarz will not be performing.
