Maestro Paul Freeman and guest conductor Harvey Felder, Music Director of the Tacoma Symphony Orchestra, open the Chicago Sinfonietta’s 2010-2011 season with a concert honoring the men and women builders of the world. This salute to labor will include Aaron Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man, a 1942 work that came about at the request of Eugene Goossens, then conductor of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, in support of the American war effort of World War II. The program continues with Antonin Dvorak’s memorable Slavonic Dances and Michal Daugherty’s Fire and Blood, featuring Tai Murray on violin, a work inspired by Mexican muralist Diego Rivera’s Detroit Industry frescos at the Detroit Institute of Arts. An original orchestral composition by Sinfonietta principal violist Renee Baker, Sundown’s Promise (for Taiko and Orchestra) will feature the percussive flair of Japanese taiko drummers JASC Tsukasa Taiko, led by Tatsu Aoki. The concert will conclude with Leonard Bernstein’s Symphonic Suite from On the Waterfront, a work composed for Elia Kazan's Academy Award-winning 1954 film.
