Live Arts Bard
April 24 and 25
The ASO’s final concert of the season concludes
with Janácek’s Sinfonietta, which the composer said
was intended to express “contemporary free man;
his spiritual beauty and joy; his strength, courage,
and determination to fight for victory.”
Mahler's magisterial Ninth—his last completed symphony
—is an impassioned elegy. Conducted by music director
Leon Botstein featuring members of the American Symphony
Orchestra, Bard College Conservatory Orchestra, and
Bard College faculty, this concert honors the life of Murray
Liebowitz, a life trustee of Bard College.
June 25 – August 16
