Americana with Carlos Kalmar

BBC Hoddinott Hall

Conductor Carlos Kalmar
Flute Adam Walker


The infectious Mexican rhythms of Coplandís El Salon Mexico entranced a generation of Americans, including Leonard Bernstein, whose Halil, for flute and orchestra, was composed in memory of an Israeli flautist killed in war. On a lighter note experience Walter Pistonís classic ballet, The Incredible Flutist, and Randall Thompsonís intrinsically rhythmic Second Symphony.

Aaron Copland : El Salon Mexico
Randall Thompon : Symphony No 2
