What You'll Get
To celebrate this year’s BPYO summer tour in Brazil, BSO has commissioned a new piece from the acclaimed Brazilian composer Clarice Assad, called “A Brazilian Journey.” Assad’s music is rooted in Brazilian styles and rhythms and further influenced by jazz. Many of her compositions include sections for improvisation by the performers. Who knows what she’ll come up with for the BPYO! You’ll also hear the winners of this year’s concerto competition, and Dvořák’s New World Symphony, which they’ll take on their tour. Dvořák wrote the symphony while living in America, and was heavily influenced by Native American music and spirituals from the black community. Listen for the influences — even the rhythm of the scherzo, which was suggested to the composer by the meter of Longfellow’s “The Song of Hiawatha!” The symphony was a sensation when it was first performed in New York, went around the world seemingly in a flash and has never lost its hold on the public. It’s the perfect symphony to bring to South America, and equally perfect for ending the season here in North America!
