    Appalachian Spring: Suite
    Lincoln Portrait

    America’s spirit of ruggedness, deep religiousness, and patriotic fervor are portrayed in Schuman’s New England Triptych by an elaborate counterpoint of intertwined melodic lines, gentle tones, and a rousing church hymn. In Perry’s Jamestown Concerto, the resourcefulness and resilience of the Virginian settlers are expressed on cello with a sense intimacy and spontaneity by Matt Haimovitz. A pioneer celebration around a newly built farmhouse, Copland’s tender Appalachian Spring portrays the emotions, joyful and apprehensive, of a couple’s domestic partnership, while his majestic Lincoln Portrait makes for a powerful and dignified ending.

    Matt Haimovitz, Cello
    A musical pioneer, cellist Matt Haimovitz has inspired classical music lovers and won over countless new listeners to the genre by bringing his artistry to concert halls, clubs, and coffee houses across the US, Canada, and the UK. Through his visionary approach, Haimovitz brings a warm, human presence to the traditional concert experience.

    Haimovitz is redefining what it means to be an artist for the 21st century.
