Symphony Tacoma: Saxophone Fusion

Orchestral, Classical, Jazz

Sarah Ioannides, Conductor | James Carter, Saxophone. Diverse cultures and rare influences present a wide representation of our society.

Puerto Rico native Roberto Sierra’s Caribbean Rhapsody, written for saxophone virtuoso James Carter, combines classical and Latin jazz influences. Poulenc’s satirical Sinfonietta represents works by Les Six, a group of young composers who sought to free French music from foreign domination in post-World War I Europe. Milhaud’s La Création du Monde tells the creation story according to African folk mythology with influences of Harlem Renaissance jazz and a multimedia film with art visuals, from African tribal sculptures to works by Picasso and Gaugin.
