The Deal

The Program

  • Aleksandr Krein—The Rose and the Cross: In its New York premiere, this five-movement piece draws inspiration from playwright Aleksandr Blok’s drama of the same name, conveying the play’s mysticism.
  • Anton Rubinstein—Cello Concerto No. 2: The founder of the Saint Petersburg Conservatory may have been a virtuosic pianist, but he dabbled in other instruments as well. His second of two cello concertos is known for its trio of movements that move fluidly from one movement to the next.
  • Mikhail Gnesin—From Shelley: In this U.S. premiere, Gnesin deviates from his usual traditional Jewish styles of music to create an opus that could double for a movie score.
  • Maximilian Steinberg—Symphony No. 1: Also making its U.S. premiere, this stately piece showcases Steinberg’s dedication to traditional, full orchestration, a style that set him apart from his contemporary and lover of modern compositions, Igor Stravinsky.

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.
