Fanfare for the Common Man

Fanfare for the Common Man

If you like Copland's Fanfare for the Common Man, you'll love his quintessentially American Symphony No. 3, which incorporates the original brass and percussion Fanfare and develops it symphonically. Antheil's Symphony is a very early example of including jazz elements in a full orchestral setting, and Bernstein's five-movement Serenade accompanies the violin solo with just strings, harp and percussion.

Carlos Kalmar, conductor
James Ehnes, violin
