Osvaldo Golijov takes us on an incredible journey with his stunningly beautiful composition Azul for solo cello, accordion and two world percussionists. This modern day American composer owes much to the trailblazers who created the American sound: Aaron Copland (Fanfare to the Common Man) and Antonin Dvorak, who inspired generations of American composers with his marvelous New World Symphony. Enjoy a new perspective on this well known work as we provide real-time program notes during the music, available on your smart phone!
