About this event
Music from both American hemispheres features tonight. First the masterpiece through which the Bohemian Dvořák, resident in New York, sought to establish an American musical identity, a symphony exuding nostalgia for his own native woods and fields.
Later comes Copland’s iconic Fanfare and highlights from Ginastera’s best-known score. Joan Tower, whose childhood was spent partly in Bolivia, celebrates ‘women who take risks and are adventurous’, while distinguished Brazilian pianist Nelson Freire returns to the Proms to play one of Villa-Lobos’s most attractive compositions.
