James MacMillan: Stomp
James MacMillan: Piano Concerto No. 2
Beethoven: Symphony No. 2
From English drinking songs to Irish jigs, composer/conductor James MacMillan’s works combine symphonic music with the traditions of the British Isles. MacMillan’s Stomp is drawn from traditional Irish dance. His colorful and virtuosic Piano Concerto No. 2, performed by pianist Rolf Hind, combines drinking songs and musical quotations from Tchaikovsky and Mozart with technical wizardry. The program also features Beethoven’s Symphony No. 2. MacMillan will explore Beethoven’s influences and how he often drew inspiration from the musical world around him.
