Copland's Appalachian Spring and Stravinsky's Pulcinella Suite
November 13–15, 2020
Will Rogers Memorial Auditorium
This concert will last approximately 80 minutes and will be performed without intermission.
Stravinsky’s Suite from Pulcinella, based on the one-act ballet of the same name written for Les Ballet Russes, is an eight movement work with music that retains the charm of the original work while incorporating harmonic and rhythmic intricacies of the twentieth-century. In the Suite from Appalachian Spring, Copland draws on the pioneering spirit of America in his depiction of a bride and groom, a revivalist minister, a pioneer woman, and the well-known Shaker Hymn “Simple Gifts” (Tis a Gift to Be Simple). In a second appearance on the program for the famed American composer, Copland’s lyrical and jazz-influenced clarinet concerto will be performed by the captivating FWSO Principal Clarinetist Stanislav Chernyshev.
