City scapes through the ages

Wander through the sounds of city streets through the ages – as composed by Orlando Gibbons and Luciano Berio.

The program 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.

This concert is part of Metropolis New Music Festival 2016.
