GERSHWIN Cuban Overture
PAT METHENY Imaginary Day, Duo Concerto for Vibraphone, Marimba and Orchestra
DVORÁK Symphony No. 9, “From the New World”

 

Gershwin’s rowdy Cuban Overture, a souvenir from his wild trip with friends to Havana, begins this concert celebrating the melting pot of American music. The songs of Kansas City jazz icon Pat Metheny are showcased in Imaginary Day, a brilliant concerto for vibes and marimba, which will feature Kansas City Symphony Principal Percussionist Christopher McLaurin and Philadelphia Orchestra Principal Percussionist Christopher Deviney. While living in the U.S. in the 1890s, Dvorák’s study of American folk melodies resulted in an affectionate tribute to this remarkable “New World.”
