Copland Music for a Great City
Gibbons Cries of London
Kurth Everything Lasts Forever
Berio Cries of London
Higdon City Scape

Robert Spano conductor
The Song Company

Threaded through this program are the sounds of city streets through the ages — as composed by Orlando Gibbons of Tudor England and Luciano Berio of 20th-century Italy. It also includes Aaron Copland’s gritty Music for a Great City and two works inspired by Atlanta, Georgia: Jennifer Higdon’s City Scape, and Michael Kurth’s Everything Lasts Forever. Conductor Robert Spano has a particular attraction to Atlanta: he has been the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra’s Chief Conductor since 2001.
