Conductor Alondra de la Parra
Soloist Martin Grubinger, Percussion
Copland Appalachian Spring
Dorman Frozen in Time
Dvořák Symphony No.9 (From the New World)
Appalachian Spring’s stirring vision of America roils with boundless optimism.
This tribute to the resilience of the human spirit and discovery of a new world is invigorating. Frozen in Time is a concerto for percussion, performed by superstar Martin Grubinger. It presents four imaginary snapshots of earth as a prehistoric continent, each contrasting movement featuring a phase in the earth's geological development. Dvořák’s late romantic symphony is one of classical music’s most popular works. Trumpeting a new dawn for American music and threaded with memorable tunes, it’s regarded as a pre-Copland homage to the pioneering frontier’s wide-open spaces and ends in major-key glory.
