    "Ansel Adams: America" Premieres

    "Ansel Adams: America," a piece for symphony orchestra written by 88-year-old jazz pianist Dave Brubeck and orchestrated by his son Chris Brubek, received its world premiere last night in Stockton, California, played by the Stockton Symphony conducted by Peter Jaffe. The piece took the Brubecks more than a year to write and was originally conceived by Northern California arts patron Susan Carson to be played as Adams images were projected in the concert hall..."

    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    I heard this on NPR yesterday afternoon. I'm a longtime fan of Dave Brubek so would have loved to hear this--music and visual are often in my head.

    It maybe preformed in Abilene, Texas just 95 miles away. I will be there for it.

    Famous equally as performers and composers and for their ability to cross over between the jazz and classical worlds, father and son Dave and Chris Brubeck teamed up to pay tribute to legendary photographer Ansel Adams. This spectacular combination of symphonic music with projected images was commissioned by a consortium of seven orchestras—the Stockton Symphony, Sacramento Philharmonic, Fresno Philharmonic, Monterey Symphony, Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Temple University Symphony Orchestra, and Abilene Philharmonic—supported by Meet the Composer and the James Irvine Foundation.
