The Masterworks series, formerly called the Classics, will provide a dynamic range of repertoire and focus on two major themes. First, we will celebrate milestones from the past, including Beethoven's 250th birthday and the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. Second, we will unravel the identities of key American composers through their music. We believe this musical lens will provide insight, value and inspiration to each of us.

Masterworks 7: Appalachian Spring


Morihiko Nakahara, Conductor

Stephen Williamson, Clarinet

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.

Geroge Gershwin - American in Paris
