Author and musicologist Joseph Horowitz returns with a new Music Unwound program, exploring elements that are distinctly American. Charles Ives' Second Symphony actually contains no original tunes! Every melody is from Americana, but ingeniously woven into a symphonic texture. William Sharp, the baritone who is considered the foremost expositor of American song, joins us for this program along with Sioux Falls native Paul Sánchez, playing Gershwin's masterpiece.

Dvořák | Suite in A Major, Op. 98, "American"

Gershwin | Rhapsody in Blue

  • Paul Sánchez, piano

Ives | Symphony No. 2
