Ludovic Morlot, conductor
Seattle Symphony

Two masterpieces from geniuses of early 20th-century American music — Ives and Gershwin. With eclectic influences of jazz club, church hall, military band and popular melody, these works amount to nothing less than a portrait of American musical styles. And standing as a delicate counterpoint is a touching document of the world premiere performances of Instances, Elliott Carter’s elegiac last orchestral work.
