COPLAND: Four Dance Episodes from Rodeo
BÉLA FLECK: Juno Concerto for banjo
MUSSORGSKY/RAVEL: Pictures at an Exhibition
Aaron Copland’s exuberant and infectious orchestral dances from the ballet Rodeo will set toes tapping. Sixteen-time Grammy winner, banjo player Béla Fleck blazes across the stage with Juno Concerto, his boundary-busting sonic extravaganza that pays homage to Copland’s own Fanfare for the Common Man. Ravel’s incandescent orchestration of Mussorgsky’s visually-inspired Pictures at an Exhibition weaves a wonderland of enchanting sketches from fairytales and Russian folk life.
“…winning Grammy Awards for country and jazz in the same year and also winning in pop, world music, classical crossover and, yes, folk. That’s a lot of territory for five strings.” – The New York Times
