Béla Fleck Premieres Concerto for Banjo and Orchestra with Nashville Symphony
Nashville Symphony Press Release
Béla Fleck, famously named after Béla Bartók, Anton Webern and Leos Janácek, is stretching the boundaries of classical music. Having worked in bluegrass, country, jazz and world music, Béla released “Perpetual Motion,” in 2001, a classical recording that featured Edgar Meyer, Joshua Bell, Chris Thile and Evelyn Glennie among others. It went on to win two Grammy Awards. In 2010 The Nashville Symphony asked him to write his first concerto for banjo, which premiered at Schermerhorn Symphony Center with Music Director, Giancarlo Guerrero. In October 2013, The Nashville Symphony will tour the Midwest with Guerrero and Fleck in concerts featuring this remarkable work. 

“This is no lightweight score. It probes the instrument’s depth and diversity with complex textures, frequent meter changes and demanding technique. Hints of blues and bluegrass are never far away, a palpable tie-in with genres that elevated Fleck to his exalted position in the banjo world. But Fleck is also a skilled composer and orchestrator, whose arsenal includes a wide array of colors, clear formal architecture and solos for instruments as diverse as bass clarinet, contrabassoon and tuba."Birmingham News, AL – Birmingham Symphony - January 13, 2012

"His virtuosity as a banjo player is unrivaled, and the concerto allowed an opportunity to showcase his abilities within a symphonic world of his own creation. The piece was a tour de force of musical intelligence, wit, and restless creativity." No Depression Blog– Nashville Symphony September 28, 2011 ... read full bio
