Copland's Fanfare for the Common Man with Maestro Robert Spano

Atlanta Symphony Hall

Dates & Tickets

Thursday, February 25, 2021 8:00 PM
Saturday, February 27, 2021 8:00 PM

One of the most iconic pieces of Americana ever written, Copland's Fanfare for the Common Man inspires Hollywood composers to the present day, and even inspired Copland himself – he returned to the fanfare's music to write his dramatic Third Symphony a few years later. Both the brassy Fanfare and the Third Symphony were considered patriotic if not populist responses to the Second World War; the former was intended to boost morale during wartime, while the latter embodies feelings of optimism which swept the nation afterwards. The evening includes a brand-new piece of American music, the ASO-commissioned Piano Concerto by Michael Gandolfi played by the renowned virtuoso Marc-André Hamelin.
