Symphony Band

“Almost Baroque”

  1. Friday September 27 8:00pm
Hill Auditorium

Michael Haithcock, conductor
Liz Ames, piano
Nicholas Music, tenor

Pre-concert conversation in the lower lobby at 7:15 PM with Liz Ames, Michael Daugherty, and Michael Haithcock.

The influence of J.S. Bach greatly inspired these works by Michael Daugherty, David Maslanka, and Igor Stravinsky. Retrospective casting of Bach’s genius illuminates their own unique compositional voices. A Baroque form employed by Ralph Vaughan Williams, a melancholy song by John Dowland adapted by Percy Grainger, and a period drinking tune disguised by Anne Clyne further illustrate the diversity of “almost Baroque” musical practices.

PROGRAM:
Ralph Vaughan Williams- Toccata Marziale
Percy Grainger- Bell-Piece (after Dowland), Nicholas Music, solo tenor
Anne Clyne- Masquerade
David Maslanka- Traveler
Stravinsky- Concerto for Piano and Wind Instruments, Liz Ames, soloist
Michael Daugherty- Bells for Stokowski
