AMERICAN DREAM

  • Piazzolla: Libertango
  • Gershwin: Lullaby
  • Copland: Hoe Down
  • Coolidge: Pioneer Dances
  • Diamond: Rounds
  • Foote: Suite for Strings Op 63
Dance rhythms are the main theme of this exciting programme of music from the Americas. Piazzolla’s world of tango features alongside Copland’s famous barn-dance-inspired Hoe Down alongside the joyous Pioneer Dances of Peggy Stuart Coolidge. Rhythm is everything in David Diamond’s exciting Rounds whilst listeners can relax to the sound of Gershwin’s sublime Lullaby. Music from earlier pioneers also gets a look-in with a gorgeous Suite for Strings by the turn-of-the-century New England composer Arthur Foote, whose music has a strong European Romantic influence. We guarantee you a lively, foot-tapping experience!
