Yale Concert Band to feature Gioacchino Rossini’s William Tell Overture and Leonard Bernstein’s Three Dance Episodes from “On The Town”
Gioacchino Rossini’s William Tell Overture (trans. by Erik W. G. Leidzén) is often considered to be the composer’s masterpiece.
The five parts of Darius Milhaud’s Suite Francaise contain excerpts from French folk songs and are named after the French provinces in which the American and Allied armies fought together during World War II.
Leonard Bernstein’s Three Dance Episodes from “On The Town” (trans. by Marice Stith) are drawn from the composer’s musical about three sailors who spend a day in New York City and discover love. Plus O Magnum Mysterium (Lauridsen) and Gabrieli Infusion (Cohen).
