Ward Stare, conductor

Misha Dichter, piano

2018 is a year in which the world celebrates the towering musical legacy of Leonard Bernstein (1918–1990). Hear Bernstein’s “Age of Anxiety,” a brilliant fusion of symphony and piano concerto which spotlights Rochester favorite Misha Dichter. Barber’s intensely lyrical Essay and Shostakovich’s carnivalesque symphony—both notably interpreted by Bernstein as a conductor—round out this not-to-be-missed “salute to Lenny.”
