Copland, Rachmaninoff, Hanson

howard-hanson-1

The time is nigh for a Howard Hanson revival.

This weekend (April 14 and 15), Music Director David Robertson leads the SLSO in works by Aaron Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man, Serge Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2, and Howard Hanson’s Symphony No. 2, “Romantic” (the source of the most memorable tune from the Alien soundtrack). The soloist for the Rachmaninoff piano concerto is Simon Trpceski.

My program notes can be read here:

If you can’t make it to Powell Hall in person, tune in Saturday night at 8 PM CST to St. Louis Public Radio. That’s FM 90.7 for those of you in the broadcast range, or you can click on the livestream here:
