Appalachian Spring

Copland
Eight Poems of Emily Dickinson

Mozart
Symphony No. 25 in G minor, K. 183

Guest Artists
Emily Pulley, soprano

Contemporary composer, Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring is one of the most decisively American pieces of symphonic music ever composed. Copland was able to make traditional music innovative with his use of the folk hymn and melodies based on traditional American music, making classical compositions relatable to the common citizen. Copland’s Eight Poems of Emily Dickenson were naturally inspired by Dickenson’s poetry, and will be presented with the assistance of the always lovely and radiant soprano, Emily Pulley. Come see this groundbreaking work come to life in the hands of Music Director Marcelo Bussiki and the BVSO musicians.

Another favorite composer will close this performance: Mozart composed his Symphony No. 25 when he was only 17 years old. In true teen angst form, this work is considered to be Mozart’s first “tragic” symphony and was written in a “storm and stress” style featuring dramatic emotional extremes often represented by minor keys, sudden changes in tempo, dynamics, and expressive music elements.
