The Music

Copland: Clarinet Concerto
Jazz-infused and bittersweet. Renowned bandleader and clarinetist Benny Goodman premiered the work on an NBC radio broadcast.

Bruckner: Symphony No. 5
Monumental and compelling. Leon Botstein led the most recent of only three recordings of the rarely-performed 1896 version.
