Episode 3: Beside the Golden Door
For centuries, immigrants have streamed into America - many with few possessions and little money. But they brought their music. If Lady Liberty wrote down every note and rhythm that landed in New York Harbor, she might have been of the greatest composers in history! In this episode for the Philadelphia Orchestra, we take a look at just a few of her musical children.
Bernstein - Prelude, Fugue, and Riffs for Solo Clarinet and Jazz Ensemble
Metheny - Duo Concerto for Vibraphone and Marimba
Dvorák - Symphony No. 9 in E minor, Op. 95 ("From the New World")
Performances are Thursday 3/30 at 8PM, Friday 3/31 at 2PM and Saturday 4/1 at 8PM at the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia, PA.
