COPLAND Appalachian Spring Suite
J. ADAMS Century Rolls
MONTGOMERY New Work (SLSO Co-commission)
GERSHWIN / arr. BENNETT Porgy and Bess: A Symphonic Picture

Gemma New shares snapshots from America’s past. Copland brings Pennsylvanian settlers to life in Appalachian Spring. Gershwin pictures a South Carolina tenement building in Porgy and Bess. Jessie Montgomery commemorates the passage of the 19th Amendment, giving and protecting women’s right to vote. And Emanuel Ax plays John Adams’ riotous piano roll-celebration, Century Rolls.
