BARBER: 'Medea's Meditation and Dance of Vengeance', Opus 23a

HIGDON: Percusion Concerto

COPLAND: Symphony No. 3

Higdon composed her Grammy-winning percussion concerto specifically for Colin Currie: who better to bring it to life than “the world’s finest percussionist” (The Spectator) himself? The concert fittingly concludes with what many have deemed the Great American Symphony, a masterwork in every sense of the word that includes the iconic Fanfare for the Common Man and culminates in a blaze of radiant glory.
