Great Falls Symphony: Rhapsody

Oct 2

LT Pick

Acclaimed pianist Awadagin Pratt makes his Great Falls Symphony debut on Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue. Ranging from intensely rhythmic piano solos to slow, broad, and richly orchestrated sections, the season opener is a study of contrasts in style, musical texture and color. Pieces include: Ludwig van Beethoven’s Overture to Egmont, Jennifer Higdon’s Celebration Fanfare and Amazing Grace, William Grant Still Jr.’s Serenade (with a surprising Great Falls connection), and Alberto Ginastera’s Four Dances from Estancia.
