The American SoundConcerts & Performances
MTT’s history with Copland reaches back decades to when he was premiering Copland’s works in the 1960s. Join MTT—master of the American sound—as he pays tribute to his mentor and friend in this evening dedicated to the home of the free and the brave. Conjuring vast landscapes and soaring spirits, Copland’s Third Symphony beautifully depicts quintessential Americana with folk-inspired melodies and its famous Fanfare for the Common Man. Ives, a visionary all his own, sets the picturesque scene for Thanksgiving Day with harvest themes and hymns that begin dissonant, but come together as one in an artful finale. Tickets are $45-$105.
