Copland: Billy the Kid: suite
Bernstein's sparkling Overture to Candide sets the scene for a programme of energetic and colourful American music. We visit the Wild West in Copland's suite from Billy the Kid and in his Four Dance Episodes from Rodeo and spend time in a dance hall, the Salon Mexico where energetic Mexican folk dances bring different colours and rhythms to the evening. American violinist, Elena Urioste, graduate of the BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists scheme joins the orchestra for Barber's lush and lyrical Violin Concerto.
