Thank you on the program is a quiet city for trumpet English horn and string orchestra by Aaron Copeland featuring Eugene Levy as a trumpet soloist
and Ferdinand prior English horn soloist. Aaron Copeland born in 1900 is now living in New York City. Quiets said he was adopted in 1040 from incidental music to a play by Irwin Shaw. This play produced a year earlier deals with the night thoughts of city dwellers. But his main character is a young trumpet player who attempts to arouse the conscience of his colleagues in the orchestra. Copeland's music reflects what he calls the in astrology and inner distress of a society profoundly aware of its own insecurity. This is one of the many problems of modern man which of concerned the composer as a composer of course. Copeland has been concerned with the problem of how to compose in an age of mass media how to reach today's audience without sacrificing his artistic standards. His own approach
seems to have been through a progressive simplification of style. The distances and jarring rhythms of Copeland's music in the 20s gave way to a simpler style and the use of folk tunes in the thirties and quiet city carries this trend a step farther. Every console has just appeared on stage about walking toward the podium in a moment well conducting something. Thanks so much for trumpet English and string orchestra. By Aaron Copeland. Why. A.

Provos double bass concerto was written for Mary Green and completed in 1968. The composer calls it an attempt to realize the melodious and virtuoso possibilities of the bass. Written in
his own style. Which he doesn't consider avant garde although it has been influenced by jazz. Proto notes that the double bass concertos of not been written since the Baroque era when they were fairly common. Today however the instrument is again coming into its own.
