"Ansel Adams: America," composed by Chris and Dave Brubeck, is a symphonic tribute saluting one of America's most cherished artists. The 22-minute, one-movement piece, fully integrates sweeping melodies with 102 striking images of or by Ansel. Few people realize that Ansel Adams trained to be a classical musician, a fact which greatly influenced the work. It has consistently played to full houses, and has succeeded in its mission to bring new and larger audiences to orchestra concerts.
