The Chairman Dances

Jennifer Higdon
Blue Cathedral

Knoxville: Summer of 1915

Symphony N0.9, From the New World

Robert Spano conductor
Elizabeth Atherton soprano

What’s your American Dream? For Samuel Barber it’s a perfect summer evening in the old mid-west; for John Adams, it’s watching Chairman Mao himself get down and boogie. Jennifer Higdon’s Blue Cathedral hints at eternal American optimism while Antonín Dvořák, lost amidst the tall buildings and liners of New York, longs for a distant homeland. The grand emotions and glorious tunes of his symphony From the New World have always been a big favourite here in Liverpool; today our American guest conductor Robert Spano shows us what else we’ve been missing.
