Ives Country Band March
Copland Appalachian Spring - Suite
Carter Variations for Orchestra
John Adams Absolute Jest for String Quartet and Orchestra

John Adams conductor
St Lawrence String Quartet
London Symphony Orchestra

The use of quotations from other works is explored in this programme conducted by John Adams: Copland’s Appalachian Spring makes use of the Shaker melody Simple Gifts, whilst Ives parodies the performance of a country band using an impressive list of quotations including London Bridge and Yankee Doodle. Adams’ own Absolute Jest incorporates more than a half dozen Beethoven fragments, mostly from the late string quartets.
