As a fitting tribute to the prophetic qualities of Brave New World, the Huxley Titles Series opens with a trio by perhaps music's greatest visionary - Beethoven. Then Firebird traverses the cultural threads of the New World via Aaron Copland's ancestral homage and Charles Ives' extraordinarily innovative score. Completing the program, composer/pianist Benjamin Martin offers a trio-arrangement of Stravinsky's seminal ballet score, celebrating the magic of the firebird.
