Hanson: Symphony No. 2
Our second Masterworks program includes two 20th century masterpieces. British composer John Rutter's Magnificat is a brilliant choral tour de force, full of energetic rhythms and strong melodies. American Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Howard Hanson wrote his second symphony to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Where Rutter celebrates the spiritual, Hanson touches the spirit.
