Acclaimed violinist Leila Josefowicz and choreographer Jessica Lang and her dance company join the National Symphony Orchestra to perform Pulitzer winner John Adams' Violin Concerto in the final program of the NEW MOVES: symphony + dance festival. Called "a master of visual composition" by Dance Magazine, Lang sets original choreography to Adams' melodic and colorful 1993 work. Josefowicz's playing has been described as being full of "zest and fiery personality" (Chicago Sun-Times) -- a perfect match for this expressive, breathless work. Also on the program are Aaron Copland's Pulitzer-winning masterpiece of pioneer life, Appalachian Spring; Michael Daugherty's Superman-inspired Red Cape Tango; and Sinfonia No. 4 ("Strands") by George Walker, the first African-American composer to win the Pulitzer.

The pre-show discussion with the Artistic Director was very interesting regarding the Company's formation, mission, dance style, and intended legacy. The dancing and choreography were fantastic! The music to the second piece was oppressive and greatly detracted from the wonderful dancers' performance! For the third piece on the Samba
again we loved the dancing, but this type of music does not lend itself to classical ballet. I lived in Brazil for many years and felt the music was a mismatch. Overall a great experience with a few musical adjustments to be made.
