Marcus Roberts, Distinguished Visiting Professor of Music. Bard President Leon Botstein conducts the American Symphony Orchestra.
Premiering December 9, the new film United We Play
features three world premieres of works for strings, jazz instrumentals, and piano composed by Marcus Roberts, distinguished visiting professor of music at Bard College, and commissioned by the American Symphony Orchestra. It includes commentary by the composer and ASO Music Director and Bard College President Leon Botstein. “The chance to hear Mr. Roberts’s orchestral language, not yet represented on recordings, is a welcome development,” writes Seth Colter Walls.
