RIVERSIDE SYMPHONY TO OFFER “HOME SWEET HOME” ON SATURDAY EVENING, APRIL 1 AT ALICE TULLY HALL

 A program exploring the subtler expressions of national origin, headlined by the

New York Premiere of Donald Crockett’s unmistakably American guitar concerto

NEW YORK, NY –  Prizewinning classical guitarist Robert Belinić will join Maestro George Rothman and the Riverside Symphony at Alice Tully Hall on Saturday evening, April 1, in a diverse program of four works from the past 125 years whose geographical provenances surface in subtle ways, quite unlike the heated fervor characteristic of the latter 19th-century Romantics Nationalists. The most current example, West Coast composer Donald Crockett’s winsome, decidedly Americana En la Tierra (featuring Mr. Belinić) in its New York premiere, incorporates the composer’s love for Stravinskian economy and transparent textures into a twangy harmonic idiom working through an open-plains sonic canvas. This newish work is distantly mirrored by Gustav Holst’s quietly epic paean to English folk music (St. Paul’s Suite), while more cosmopolitan Prokofiev and Ravel masterpieces, the Classical Symphony and le Tombeau de Couperin respectively, nonetheless disclose the composers’ national origins, though in sublimated fashion.
