COPLAND Symphony No. 3  Program Notes

Aaron Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man is featured prominently in the finale of his Third Symphony. Composer Andrew Norman's Gran Turismo, inspired by the Italian car-racing video game, is a workout for eight violinists. Influenced by the Academy Award-winning film, Kevin Puts' Oboe Concerto, "Moonlight," a BSO commission, shines the spotlight on Principal Oboe Katherine Needleman.
