Carlos Kalmar, conductor
Antheil: Jazz Symphony
• Bernstein: Serenade (After Plato's Symposium) -- James Ehnes, violin soloist
Copland: Symphony No. 3 (incorporating Fanfare for the Common Man)
If you like Copland's Fanfare for the Common Man, you'll love his quintessentially American Symphony No. 3, which incorporates the original brass and percussion Fanfare and develops it symphonically. Antheil's Symphony is a very early example of including jazz elements in a full orchestral setting, and Bernstein's five-movement Serenade accompanies the violin solo with just strings, harp and percussion.
