Atlanta-based composer Carlos Simon explores African American tradition in Tales: A Folklore Symphony, inspired by the many heroic characters found in the works of the creative duo Black Kirby. Sergei Rachmaninov’s youthful First Symphony blends ravishing melodies and unique Romantic themes into four movements defined by superb orchestral balance, allowing the listener to follow every voice of its magnificent polyphony.
