Nir Kabaretti, Conductor
Donald Foster, Clarinet
Milhaud: The Creation of the World
Copland: Concerto for Clarinet
Beethoven: Symphony No. 7
Arguably one of the greatest classical pieces ever written, Beethoven's Symphony No. 7 headlines the evening. But first, how did composers work early jazz into their pieces? Milhaud attempted the connection in his depiction of the Creation of the World. Later, Aaron Copland listened to the great swing clarinetist Benny Goodman before composing a piece especially for him, the lyrical Concerto for Clarinet. And finally, is there room for Beethoven in an evening of Jazz connections? As the concert concludes with the rhythmic and joyous Symphony No. 7, it invites us to wonder...who swings more--Benny Goodman or Beethoven?
