Premiered in 1986, John Adams’ Short Ride lives up to its name; it’s a four-minute, full-throttle explosion of sonic muscle that relents only as it crosses the finish line. Russian pianist Yulianna Avdeeva will make her Philharmonic debut with Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto, which reveals the composer’s ability to appeal to the head as much as to the heart.  It’s a perfect blend of Romantic pathos, revolutionary brio and ruminative introspection. Our final piece on this concert is by Aaron Copland, who built the finale of his Third Symphony around his own powerful overture from World War II, Fanfare for the Common Man.  Invoking Fanfare, Copland made a musical proclamation which many now consider the ‘Great American Symphony.’
