Masterworks 5: Daybreak of Freedom

Feb 2nd 2025

Sun. Doors Open 1:30 PM

The Spokane Symphony presents Masterworks 5: Daybreak of Freedom.

After substantial initial success, William Dawson’s Symphony fell into decades of neglect, from which it’s only now emerging. Full of Spiritual melodies and African rhythms, the work is a brilliant and essential piece of American musical history. Joseph Schwantner sets Martin Luther King’s speeches to a soaring and luminous orchestral palate, and Beethoven opens with music of victory over oppression.
