Béla Fleck

Some people say Béla Fleck has reinvented the image and the sound of the banjo through a remarkable performing and recording career that has taken him all over the musical map and on a range of solo projects and collaborations. He performs his own Banjo Concerto with the Cleveland Orchestra and guest conductor Giancarlo Guerrero. It's an all-American program that also includes Copland's Suite from Billy the Kid, Gershwin's An American in Paris and John Adams' Short Ride in a Fast Machine.
