Copland’s Appalachian Spring 

Copland’s joyous Appalachian Spring has become one of the most beloved pieces in the American repertoire, earned Copland a Pulitzer Prize, and was recorded by the San Francisco Symphony in 1999. Beethoven admired Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 20 for its elegance, beauty, and tenderness. One of music’s foremost Mozart interpreters, Christian Zacharias, conducts from the keyboard in this masterwork, and Haydn’s Symphony No. 93 from the podium in this week’s concerts.
