Available Concerts

  • Prague Central (Friday, February 10, at 8 p.m.)—Leon Botstein leads this sonic celebration of original and influential works of early 20th century Czech composers. The program begins with Vítězslav Novák’s ode to mountain climbing, In the Tatras, followed by the melodic “germs” of Bohuslav Martinů’s Symphony No. 3 and, Josef Suk’s Scherzo fantastique, and Schulhoff’s cinematic Symphony No. 5.
  • The Apostles (Friday, May 12, at 8 p.m.)—This sublime and heartbreakingly human oratorio for soloists, chorus and orchestra composed by Edward Elgar of Enigma Variations fame retells the New Testament story of the Twelve through the Resurrection, and features soprano Jennifer Check as The Blessed Virgin, mezzo-soprano Sara Murphy as Mary Magdalene, tenor Paul McNamara as St. John, and bass-baritone Adrian Rosas as Jesus.

American Symphony Orchestra

For more than half a century the American Symphony Orchestra has hewn to founder Leopold Stokowski's original vision: "to offer concerts of great music within the means of everyone." That means its shows aren't just financially affordable, they're also demystified by conductor lectures and never held inside biodomes. In recent years, the organization has added a new facet to its time-tested strategy: curated concerts built around a theme. Shows might explore a particular place and time, examine a literary motif, or delve into the interaction between music and visual art. This strategy has attracted a lot of attention, and not just from audiences: such greats as Yo-Yo Ma, Deborah Voigt, Sarah Chang, and Carnegie Hall's mask-wearing Phantoms of the Barbershop Quartet have all vied to play with the Orchestra.
