- Jeffrey Kahane, conductor & piano
- Dvořák Serenade for Winds, Op. 44
- Copland Appalachian Spring Suite (original 1944 version) listen
- John Adams Son of Chamber Symphony
- Gershwin Rhapsody in Blue (original 1924 version)
Groove to the distinctive clarinet riff which opens Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue. Both Gershwin and his contemporary, Copland, melded together jazz and folk within a more traditional format, helping to smash music and cultural barriers and establish a uniquely American sound. Dvořák’s Serenade further demonstrates the extraordinary finesse of LACO’s wind players, and you’ll hear Son of Chamber Symphony by John Adams, possibly the “the most vital and eloquent composer in America” (The New Yorker).
“as a pianist, Mr. Kahane is an energetic and eloquent player.” (The New York Times)
