Austria and America share the spotlight when the Bruckner Orchestra of Linz, led since 2002 by its Music Director Dennis Russell Davies, celebrates American composers with the superb violinist Robert McDuffie. Davies leads the renowned ensemble in pieces by Duke Ellington and Samuel Barber and a new work by Philip Glass, his Symphony No. 11, commissioned by Davies in honor of Glass’ 80th birthday. A minimalist master and more, Davies has recorded not only all the Glass symphonies, but also all of Franz Josef Haydn’s and Anton Bruckner’s.
Ellington (arr. Peress): Black, Brown, and Beige Suite
