Palm Beach Symphony Presents: Earth Tones

March 19 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

$10 – $100

In Paul Creston’s singular concerto for accordion, the American son of Sicilian immigrants lifted the humble squeezebox from European sidewalks to the world’s loftiest concert halls. Another overlooked American, David Diamond, drew on the age-old technique of singing in “rounds” to create one of the most enduring and attractive works of mid-century modernism. Memories of Italy, with its bright sunshine and fiery people, informed the vibrant and wild energy of Mendelssohn’s Fourth Symphony.
