After more than 30 tours taking in almost every state in the USA, amarcord has decided to pay musical tribute to the former land of opportunity in an entire concert programme. Beginning with the first American composers of significance at the end of the 19th century – the New Englanders George Chadwick, Horatio Parker and Charles Ives – we’ll then continue via modern classical composers such as Aaron Copland, Samuel Barber and John Cage before arriving at the present day. The programme will include a number of world premieres and German first performances, all fruits of the many encounters in amarcord’s 30-year career. Given the huge variety of sounds and styles in compositions by Joanne Metcalf, Vanessa Lann, Steven Sametz, Sydney M. Boquiren and Scott Lee, there’s plenty to get excited about!
