Friday April 16th - Gavin Maloney conducts Copland, Barber & Adams

Paul Herriott introduces an all-American programme conducted by Gavin Maloney featuring Copland's Quiet City, his atmospheric concert suite for trumpet and orchestra; Samuel Barber’s gorgeous hymn to smalltown America, Knoxville: Summer of 1915 with soprano Rachel Croash as soloist; and Shaker Loops by the Pulitzer Prize-winning John Adams. Based on childhood memories of an abandoned Shaker colony in New Hampshire. Adams says it 'summons up the vision of these otherwise pious and industrious souls caught up in the ecstatic frenzy of a dance that culminated in an epiphany of physical and spiritual transcendence’. Read more in our Programme Notes.
