About Appalachian Spring
As the title of Laura Karpman’s premiere suggests, this is truly an all-American program, featuring music by some of the nation's most loved composers. Samuel Barber is represented by his elegant and virtuosic Violin Concerto, Duke Ellington by the symphonic jazz of his "Harlem," and Aaron Copland by the quintessentially American imagery of his ballet score "Appalachian Spring."
