Brent Michael Davids’ Prayer and Celebration, the final two movements from his Powwow Symphony, melds spiritual and joyous elements of a powwow, a tribute to his indigenous heritage, with classical sound. Composer Alex Berko draws from the origins of The Mayflower Compact, the document that became the seeds of American democracy. Pastoral, one of Beethoven’s few works containing explicitly programmatic content, depicts the composer’s love of nature, sketched from his time spent in the countryside. The composer said his Sixth Symphony is “more the expression of feeling than painting.”
