After their UMS debut in November 2019, which featured Vivaldi’s Four Seasons paired with a new take on the work by Max Richter, violinist Daniel Hope returns with the Zurich Chamber Orchestra in a new program that takes a deep dive into the rich repertoire of American music, exploring its roots and distinctive qualities.

“We know a piece is from America the moment we hear it,” Hope says. “But what makes it sound American?” With arrangements by Paul Bateman for solo violin with various classical and jazz combinations, this concert will explore some familiar and unfamiliar tunes by a variety of American composers.

Program

Aaron Copland “Hoe-Down” from Rodeo
Duke Ellington “Come Sunday” from Black, Brown and Beige
Florence Price Adoration
Kurt Weill American Song Suite
Samuel Barber Adagio for Strings, Op. 11
Aaron Copland “At the River” from Old American Songs
Philip Glass Echorus
George Gershwin Song Suite
