Aaron Copland is considered to have been the “dean of
American composers”. His style, a brilliant synthesis of the
European classical tradition and the American vernacular,
is instantly recognizable. His Fanfare for the Common
Man is one of the great pages of musical patriotism, and
is a work whose familiarity belies its originality. The Third
Symphony, composed during the final years of World War
II, is the best known of his symphonies. While it represents
the epitome of his American style, it uses no folk tunes, but
extensively develops the thematic material of his Fanfare,
written a few years earlier.
The ebullient virtuosity of Beethoven’s Concerto N. 5 for
Piano and Orchestra in E flat Op. 73 (the “Emperor
Concerto”) finds a perfect champion in the young
pianist, Baron Fenwick. Last season Baron wowed the
South Shore Symphony audience with his rendition of
Bernstein’s Second Symphony (“The Age of Anxiety”) and
he subsequently added to his list of accomplishments by
winning the concerto competition at the prestigious Mannes
School of Music at The New School.
