Night II of the RESONATE FESTIVAL with Artist-in-Residence ANTHONY MCGILL, clarinet

PROGRAM 1: MCGILL, COPLAND & BERNSTEIN

It’s a night of all-American music! First up: Aaron Copland’s Clarinet Concerto with Anthony McGill center stage. Commissioned and inspired by Benny Goodman, it moves from lyrical and serene to an ever-so-brief soliloquy for the soloist to a rollicking final movement fusing jazz, South American folk tunes, and American dance rhythms. From On the Town—his love letter to the Big Apple—a dance-y Broadway show about the adventures of three sailors on shore-leave during World War II—Bernstein extracted a high-spirited suite that will set your feet to dancing, too! In between, Copland’s quintessentially American Appalachian Spring—full of tenderness, hope, and belief in the future. Listen for fiddle tunes and the beloved Shaker melody “Simple Gifts.”

PROGRAM 2: BRAHMS CLARINET QUINTET

We must all be grateful that Brahms came out of self-imposed “retirement” to compose his four late masterpieces that have made him especially beloved of clarinetists, with this Quintet often regarded as his greatest chamber music achievement. The instrument’s sweet tone evokes moods of melancholy and serenity with an exquisitely dark palette that blends beautifully with the strings—all brought out superbly by our Artist-in-Residence Anthony McGill and the musician-artists of the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra.
