ABOUT THIS CONCERT

Commissioned by Benny Goodman, Copland’s Clarinet Concerto is a fun and dynamic fusion of jazz and classical, from its gentle opening to the closing Rhapsody in Blue-esque glissando. Hear it performed by the Symphony’s Principal Clarinet Mark Nuccio in a concert also featuring Beethoven’s lively Symphony No. 2 and music of the innovative Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson.
