Bernstein & Beethoven

Francesco Lecce-Chong, Conductor | Ran Dank, Piano

David Schiff: Stomp

Bernstein: Symphony No. 2, “The Age of Anxiety”

Beethoven: Symphony No. 8

Continuing our celebration of an American legend, Bernstein’s ‘symphony’ is actually a colorful piano concerto based on a Pulitzer Prize-winning poem by W.H. Auden which depicts the wild and soul-searching adventures of young people on a night out in New York City. Beethoven’s Eighth, his shortest symphony, has infectious energy and boundless optimism. Oregon composer David Schiff’s perfectly titled Stomp sets the mood for a thrilling evening of music
