This distinctly American program features pianist and composer Aaron Diehl, kicking off his second season as the MSO’s artistic partner with Gershwin’s Concerto in F. Copland’s cowboy ballet Rodeo is a joyful romp through the American West in this symphonic suite. William Grant Still, often called “the dean of African-American composers,” wrote his lyrical Symphony No. 2 as a depiction of the Black experience and a vision of an integrated society.
