Casual Friday: André Raphel conducts Still and Caine with the Uri Caine Trio, Barbara Walker, vocalist, and Catto Chorus

Boston Symphony Orchestra

Symphony Hall, Boston, MA

American conductor André Raphel leads this first program in a series exploring complex social issues. The centerpiece of these concerts is Philadelphia jazz pianist and composer Uri Caine’s gospel and popular music-based The Passion of Octavius Catto, which tells of the 19th-century civil rights leader’s fight for justice. In four movements, “Longing,” “Sorrow,” “Humor,” and “Aspiration,” William Grant Still’s 1930 Afro-American Symphony, his best-known work, is a blues-tinged panorama of the composer’s heritage.

After the performance, Uri Caine and André Raphel will take questions from the audience. See what else makes this Casual Friday concert special >
