Join the CRSO for an exciting programme of American classics, ranging from Copland's famous Fanfare to the Common Man to John Williams's exhilarating score for Steven Spielberg's 1982 film "E.T. The Extra Terrestrial". John Adams's brilliant Short Ride in a Fast Machine is part of the BBC's "Ten Pieces" project, and is paired with Adams's highly entertaining Lollapalooza. We could not, of course, present an American programme without some wonderful works by Gershwin; the ever-popular Rhapsody in Blue and colourful An American in Paris complete a thrilling programme.
The programme is:
Copland Fanfare for the Common Man
Barber Adagio for Strings
John Adams Short Ride in a Fast Machine & Lollapalooza
Gershwin Rhapsody in Blue & An American in Paris
Copland Quiet City
John Williams E.T. Adventures on Earth
Peter Bassano Conductor
