Program Notes

New York: 1927

Warren Barker, composer

New York: 1927 is a musical snapshot of the "Roaring Twenties," a carefree and irresistible time. The opening "Ragtime" depicts the prosperous and carefree spirit of the times. "Blues" rhapsodizes wistfully and whimsically in roaring twenties fashion. "Manhattan Mayhem" cleverly creates a typical busy street scene at a midtown intersection, as cars weave in and around, police whistles shriek in attempted jurisdiction, and a barrage of pedestrians scurry onward.
