APPALACHIAN SPRING WITH RYAN BANCROFT
Ryan Bancroft conductor
IVES Three Places in New England
WALLEN Dances for Orchestra (World Premiere)
COPLAND Appalachian Spring (complete ballet)
From homespun folk hymns to blazing marching bands, experience musical America at its most visionary – in the hands of vibrant young California-born conductor (and Royal Conservatoire of Scotland alumnus) Ryan Bancroft.
Aaron Copland’s warm and generous ballet score Appalachian Spring combines foot-tapping folk dances with moving musical evocations of America’s vast landscapes. Charles Ives, however, paints mystical musical portraits of three New England sites, with ghostly memories of Civil War tunes alongside raucous parading bands jostling for our attention.
In between, we unveil a brand new piece from the vivid musical imagination of Belize-born, now Scottish-based composer Errollyn Wallen.
