Copland – Billy the Kid Suite
Copland – Clarinet Concerto
Tchaikovsky – Symphony No. 4

Beloved American composer Aaron Copland is highlighted in these programs which feature the Billy the Kid Suite, and guest artist, Russian-born Alexander Fiterstein, performing Copland’s clarinet concerto, written in the late forties for Benny Goodman. Also included is Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4, with its theme of Fate. Tchaikovsky noted, “Never yet has any of my orchestral works cost me so much labor, but I’ve never yet felt such love for any of my things… I will add only that there is not a single line in my symphony which I have not felt deeply, and which does not echo true and sincere emotions.”
