JoAnne Falleta’s second appearance with SSV begins with a pair of short works by a noted early-20th century woman composer.
David Amram’s concerto follows, featuring a pair of Symphony players: Concertmaster Robin Mayforth and Principal Cellist Evan Kahn.
Partners celebrates three pairs of Amram’s musical friends — Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger, Lester Young and Billie Holiday, Machito Grillo and Celia Cruz — in three movements that reflect their distinctive styles.
Symphonic Dances, with its irresistible rhythms, lush harmonies and surprising alto saxophone solo, brings the program to an end.
Conductor: JoAnn Falletta
Soloists: Robin Mayforth, Evan Kahn
