Bernstein & Firebird8:00 pm October 24, 2015
2:30 pm October 25, 2015
Two iconic American works will be followed by an early masterpiece by a composer who became a naturalized American late in life. The program is exceptionally rich in evoking stories and ideas from the world of Russian folktales to the classic Romeo and Juliet story set in modern New York City to the many films and public occasions that have featured Barber’s Adagio for Strings. (The composer himself set this haunting work to the words of the Agnus Dei a few years before his death.)
Dvořák8:00 pm December 5, 2015
2:30 pm December 6, 2015
We celebrate one of the giants of composition with two of his masterpieces written in the United States. There have been endless debates about the extent to which this music is "Czech" or "American," but one thing is for sure: Dvořák knew how to make the classical forms of symphony and concerto sound intensely personal and universal at the same time.
