      Asheville Symphony: Sibelius' 2nd feat. Joyce Yang, Piano

      The sound worlds of John Adams, Manuel de Falla and Jan Sibelius are rooted in different countries, time periods and influences, yet these works of all three deal with nationalism, and each uses rhythmic drive and vigor to communicate that theme. The Chairman Dances—a vignette from John Adams’ infamous opera Nixon in China—paints a bitingly comic picture of the Mao regime. Manuel de Falla’s rarely-performed masterpiece Nights in the Gardens of Spain is a loving, Impressionist portrait of his country’s beauty and fire. The program closes with Sibelius’ great Symphony No. 2, a poignant tribute to the people of his native Finland.
      Program:
      Adams: The Chairman Dances
      Falla: Nights in the Gardens of Spain
      Sibelius: Symphony No. 2
