Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra / JoAnn Falletta

Edward Kennedy ‘Duke’ Ellington wrote some of the twentieth century’s greatest Big Band music, but he also wrote in a variety of forms. The boisterous and evocative Harlem pays tribute to Ellington’s roots, Black, Brown, and Beige sets work songs and spirituals, whilst the suite from The River shows his genius in writing for the stage. Three Black Kings, scored as a ballet, was left unfinished at his death, but shows no lessening of invention. Ellington’s arrangement of Billy Strayhorn’s Take the ‘A’ Train became famous around the world after the outbreak of World War II, and ranks among the most widely recorded standards of all time.

Duke Ellington’s suites were written for a variety of reasons. The master of Big Band jazz was also a master of tone poems such as the boisterous and evocative Harlem and the African-American-celebrating Black, Brown and Beige. Each piece reflects a facet of his genius, from the early maturity of Harlem to his late, uncompleted Three Black Kings.

JoAnn Falletta serves as Music Director of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra and Virginia Symphony in the United States and Principal Conductor of the Ulster Orchestra in Northern Ireland. Her Naxos recordings include the double GRAMMY® Award winning disc of works by John Corigliano.
