Symphony Orchestra, led by music director Jed Gaylin,
will end its 25th
anniversary season with Aaron Copland's Symphony No. 3 and

Trio: Vladimir Lande, oboe; Bryan Young, bassoon; and Irina

The concert will take place at 3 p.m. on Sunday, April
27, in Homewood's Shriver Hall. A pre-
concert talk with the composer and musicologist Max
Derrickson will begin at 2 p.m.
Panariello's new work is an homage to 18th-century
Italian comic opera, with each movement
featuring one of the soloists in an operatic role. The
bassoonist is a "comic basso," perhaps a
resourceful servant or a gullible old man. The pianist is a
daydreamy young woman of good family who
awaits her Prince Charming. The oboist portrays the cunning
tenor, the Pulcinella.
The Poulenc Trio, which recently concluded a Russian
tour with violinist Hilary Hahn,
commissioned the new work, which is dedicated to them.
Many consider Aaron Copland's third symphony to be the
quintessential American symphony. The
massive work, composed in 1946, features the beloved
"Fanfare for the Common Man."
Admission to the April 27 concert is free for Johns
Hopkins students. Tickets are $8 for other
students, seniors (60+) and Johns Hopkins staff, faculty
