The Program

  • Barber—Adagio for Strings: Barber’s sweeping meditation on loss and grief was written in the midst of the Great Depression as war in Europe loomed. One of the most recognizable works of the 20th century, the piece has been used to commemorate such occasions as the death of Franklin Roosevelt, the TV broadcast announcement of John F. Kennedy’s death, and the September 11 attacks.
  • Barber—Symphony No. 1: Also called the “Symphony in One Movement,” Barber’s early 20th century masterpiece synthesized the classic four-movement structure into one. It also became the first-ever American symphony performed at the prestigious Salzburg Festival.
  • Bolcom—Concerto for Four Saxophones: This concerto by Ann Arbor resident and Pulitzer- and Grammy-winning composer emphasizes a group dynamic rather than solo skills. Throughout, audiences soak up an expanding musical palette, from the blues-evoking first movement to the bebopping, Bach-influenced fourth.
  • Bernstein—Three Dance Episodes from On the Town: These episodes pull the jazz-influenced dance numbers out of Bernstein’s wartime musical, serving as both a love poem to New York City and fuel for foot-tapping.
