MasterWorks 3: American Festival

Guest Artists: Saxophone Quartet

(Griffin Campbell, Jim Forger, Joe Lulloff, Chris Creviston)

Barber: Adagio for Strings

Barber: Symphony No. 1

Bolcom: Concerto for 4 Saxophones

Bernstein: On the Town: Three Dance Episodes

This colorful program showcases American composers, past and present, each leaving their musical mark in a different way. Opening the program is Barber’s emotionally compelling Adagio for Strings, strikingly scored for only strings, it’s considered one of the most popular 20th-century works. Written several decades later by Grammy and Pulitzer Prize winner William Bolcom, Concerto for 4 Saxophones is an entertaining composition full of jazz elements and virtuosic passages, exhilarating till the end.
