Three composers offer their unique perspectives of the American experience through music in a kaleidoscopic showcase of the American sound. Dvořák’s The American Flag conjures vibrant impressions of an immigrant arriving in a new nation, while Ives’ Pulitzer Prize-winning Symphony No. 3 evokes a quaint, sensory world of rural American life. Finally, Gershwin’s celebratory An American in Paris depicts an expatriate’s foray through the jazz-infused whirlwind sweeping Europe during the Roaring Twenties.
