“a stunning, absolutely unforgettable rendition” – The Boston Musical Intelligencer

program

 
  • Charles Ives, Songs for soprano & piano
  • Amy Beach, Piano Quintet in f sharp minor, Op. 67 (1908)
  • Arthur Berger, Quartet for Winds in C Major
  • John Harbison, North & South II for soprano & English horn, clarinet, bassoon & strings
  • Aaron Copland, Appalachian Spring, Suite for 13 players

From breathtaking, open landscapes to the soul of a people, Aaron Copland defined the American Sound with his poignant and enduringly popular Appalachian Spring. Ives, too, embodied a way of life with the hymns, marches, dance music, and parlor songs from New England towns. Back Bay resident Amy Beach became one of America’s first successful composers, and John Harbison brings our journey into the present with his blues-inflected settings of Elizabeth Bishop.
