Copland - Appalachian Spring (complete, large orchestra version)

Saturday, November 24, 2018

8:00 pm Verizon Hall

You may think you know Appalachian Spring, but the newly completed version performed here is the complete chamber ballet score orchestrated for a large ensemble. (Eugene Ormandy himself asked Copland to expand the orchestration a half century ago.) Consider it our “simple gift” to you! Our good friend Cristian Macelaru leads this all-American program. He's arranged a suite from Jake Heggie's opera Moby Dick (“a masterpiece of clarity and intensity”—San Francisco Chronicle). Garrick Ohlsson brings his impressive talent to the Barber Piano Concerto, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1963.
