Jader Bignamini kicks off his tenure as DSO Music Director with a program spanning four centuries. DSO brass is showcased in Copland’s American anthem and Gabrieli’s Venetian School innovations, while an early gem from Richard Strauss highlights the winds. DSO strings are featured in Philip Herbert’s remembrance of a Black British teenager murdered in an act of racist violence, and the concert concludes with a tribute to the late Ennio Morricone.
