Bold lines, primary colours and a rhythmic energy that speaks plainly and without compromise – Copland’s music has a personality that’s hard to ignore, whether he’s evoking a Pennsylvanian farm wedding or the urban canyons of Manhattan. In this arresting programme, Oliver Knussen pairs major Copland orchestral works with music by Feldman – a composer who took Copland’s all-American simplicity and refined it into a vision of the infinite – and a new concerto by Philip Cashian, premiered by fellow composer Huw Watkins.


This performance will be recorded for future broadcast by BBC Radio 3
