While waiting in the lobby, it was the same as waiting outside on frigid night. It was very uncomfortable, sadly. The symphony was absolutely breathtaking.
On the Program:
Antonín Dvorák — Symphony No. 4
Heinrich von Herzogenberg — Symphony No. 1 (U.S. Premiere)
Johannes Brahms — Symphony No. 4
All ticketholders are invited to attend a 30-minute Conductor’s Notes Q&A at 7:00pm on the Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage.
About the Ticket Supplier: American Symphony Orchestra
The American Symphony Orchestra was founded 50 years ago by Leopold Stokowski, with the avowed intention of making orchestral music accessible and affordable for everyone. Under Music Director Leon Botstein, Stokowski’s mission is not only intact but thrives. And beyond that, the ASO has become a pioneer in what The Wall Street Journal called “a new concept in orchestras,” presenting concerts curated around various themes drawn from the visual arts, literature, politics, and history, and unearthing rarely-performed masterworks for well-deserved revival. These concerts are performed in the Vanguard Series at Carnegie Hall.
The orchestra also gives the celebrated concert series Classics Declassified at Peter Norton Symphony Space, and regularly performs at the Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts at Bard College, where it appears in a winter subscription series as well as Bard’s annual SummerScape Festival and the Bard Music Festival. In 2010, the ASO became the resident orchestra of The Collegiate Chorale, performing regularly in the Chorale’s New York concert series. The orchestra has made several tours of Asia and Europe, and has performed in countless benefits for organizations including the Jerusalem Foundation and PBS.
Many of the world’s most accomplished soloists have performed with the ASO, among them Yo-Yo Ma, Deborah Voigt, and Sarah Chang. In addition to CDs released by the Telarc, New World, Bridge, Koch, and Vanguard labels, many live performances by the American Symphony are now available for digital download. In many cases, these are the only existing recordings of some of the rare works that have been rediscovered in ASO performances.
