Aurora Orchestra

Road Trip

6 Oct 2014

Barcode: 0825646327911

Composer: John Adams, Charles Ives, Aaron Copland, Nico Muhly, Paul Simon

Aurora Orchestra’s ROADTRIP takes listeners on a journey across America with a programme that juxtaposes core American compositions by John Adams, Charles Ives and Aaron Copland with specially commissioned folk/pop-song arrangements by young American composer Nico Muhly, including Paul Simon’s hit 'Hearts and Bones'. The collaborations - with Muhly and American singer-songwriter guest soloists Sam Amidon and Dawn Landes - are inspired and refreshing; words that have become synonymous with this dynamic British ensemble.
