Liner Notes

Composed in 1939 as incidental music for a play by Irwin Shaw, Quiet City was reset by Copland the following year for solo trumpet, solo English horn and string ensemble. The mood of the work contrasts questioning lines and long cantinela phrases in the two solo voices with an accompaniment at once still and subdued, and later alternately fervent and moving. Wynton Marsalis and Phillip Koch combine their unique talents in this version, scored for solo trumpet, solo English horn and chamber wind ensemble by Donald Hunsberger. This edition is the only such setting to bear the approval of the composer.
