About

Composed between 1963 and 2005, these four works form a spectrum that demonstrates a tendency among composers of American concert music to draw from a wide range of musical streams classical, popular, folk and jazz.

This colourful programme is performed by the North Carolina Symphony on their first BIS recording, conducted by Grant Llewellyn and with solo appearances by the celebrated jazz saxophonist Branford Marsalis and his quartet.
