DPO bass trombonist Daniel Morris performs Brubeck’s Concerto for Bass Trombone and Orchestra, a piece that caused a stir in the classical music world with its jazzy influences. To close out the concert, it’s Dvorak’s Symphony No. 9, nicknamed “New World” because the composer wrote it during his time in the U.S. This piece is considered the first great symphony about America and includes themes and inspirations from African American spirituals and Native American music.
