The Program

  • Copland—Hoe-Down from Rodeo: The ballet Copland wrote for Agnes de Mille features dance sequences linked together in this suite. Most notable is the Hoe-Down, its jaunty refrain heard in everything from steak commercials to albums from Emerson, Lake & Palmer, who recorded their own version of it.
  • Copland—Selections from Billy the Kid: Melding traditional cowboy songs from the old west with playful classicality, Copland’s ballet retells the story of one of America’s greatest outlaws and worst-behaved kids.
  • Ives—Movements III and V from Symphony No. 2: Though the movements’ names—Adagio cantabile and Lento maestoso—are Italian, the music itself is decidedly of this country. The composer blended hymns and traditional folk songs to create a modern American sound all his own.

New World Symphony

Most people would feel spread thin if they were running orchestras on both sides of the country. But most people aren't Michael Tilson Thomas. One of America's most famous conductors, composers, and tuxedo-wearers, Tilson Thomas has remained the artistic director of the New World Symphony since he founded it in 1987, even after becoming musical director of the San Francisco Symphony in 1995. This is because the Miami-based orchestra feeds a need for Tilson Thomas: that of remaining at the forefront of symphonic trends, in a laboratory where top musical graduates can explore performance and compositional opportunities. But new works from students and professionals aren't the only thing on the New World Symphony's docket—every year, ticket-holders can expect a thrilling lineup of the classical masters who built the genre.
