Sometimes called the “greatest American symphony,” Aaron Copland’s expansive, tuneful, and highly original Symphony No. 3 is the centerpiece of this exploration of American influence led by conductor Teddy Abrams. Twenty-five-year-old Canadian violinist Blake Pouliot brings his artistry to the fantastically dramatic shifts and unbridled emotion of Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No. 2, composed shortly after the composer’s return to the Soviet Union following two decades in the West. Abrams kicks off the program with one of his own compositions.
