Americana with Eric Stern
with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales
Tuesday 19 November 2013, 2pm
JOHN ADAMS Gnarly Buttons
DAVID DIAMOND Rounds for String Orchestra
ROY HARRIS Symphony No 9
Conductor Eric Stern
Clarinet Mark Simpson
The aerial acrobatics of two eagles, soaring and tumbling in the air, inspired Ned Rorem’s Eagles, and its bright, athletic energy also permeates David Diamond’s Rounds. John Adams’ clarinet concerto, Gnarly Buttons, is an affectionate tribute to his clarinettist father. Hear it next to Roy Harris’ richly humanistic Ninth Symphony.
Tickets £9 - 12
