COPLAND Symphony No. 3                                                             

This all-American program features two composers of today alongside Aaron Copland, the dean of American composers. Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man is featured prominently in the finale of his Third Symphony. The New Yorker called composer Andrew Norman “the master of a uniquely dazzling and mercurial style.” Inspired by the car-racing video game Gran Turismo, Norman’s work is a workout for eight violinists. Influenced by Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos, Kevin Puts’ Oboe Concerto, a BSO commission, shines the spotlight on BSO Principal Oboe Katherine Needleman.

This concert is not presented by Strathmore.
