Sarah Ioannides, conductor
Kelly Hall-Tompkins, violin
Bernstein: Candide Overture
Wynton Marsalis: Violin Concerto
Copland: Symphony No. 3
All the wit, élan and sophistication associated with the satirical operetta genre is apparent in the overture Bernstein wrote for Candide, complete with fanfare, pratfalls and a conclusion with “musical sparks.” Famed jazz musician Wynton Marsalis brings “a party to the stage” with his Violin Concerto that incorporates the energy of jazz and blues traditions along with traditional fiddle music. In his Third Symphony, Aaron Copland creates an “abstract Americana” reflective of his desire to foster a distinctive American music.
