Featuring Conrad Pope
WORLD PREMIERE Composition
Symphony No. 3
The CSO’s final Masterworks concert of the season features the world premiere of a new orchestral work by film composer Conrad Pope, written specifically for the CSO to end our 42nd year. As a highly sought composer, orchestrator, arranger, and conductor, Conrad Pope is famous for his contributions to many popular films including the Harry Potter, Hobbit, and Star Wars series.
Paired with this premiere is the classic Americana of Aaron Copland’s Symphony No. 3, which premiered here in Boston in 1946. The openness and optimism of Copland’s symphony build to a climax in the last movement, which is based on his famous Fanfare for the Common Man.
