COPLAND: Four Dance Episodes from Rodeo
TOVEY: The Lincoln Tunnel Cabaret
DVOŘÁK: Symphony No. 8 in G major, Op. 88
Rodeo is Copland’s musical score to Agnes de Mille’s ballet about cowboys. Tovey’s own jazzy composition, The Lincoln Tunnel Cabaret, features New York Philharmonic principal trombone, Joseph Alessi. Closing the concert is Antonin Dvořák’s Symphony No. 8, a cheery work which draws its inspiration from the Bohemian folk music that Dvořák so loved.
