Leon Botstein, Music Director

Leopold Stokowski’s Orchestral Invention

Program: Strauss: Emperor Waltz, op. 437, Accelerations, op. 234, On the Beautiful Blue Danube, op. 314; Conus: Violin Concerto in E Minor; Brahms: Symphony no. 2 in D Major, op. 73.

From the stage of Carnegie Hall to the stage of The PAC’s Concert Hall, and halls throughout the world, Leopold Stokowski’s American Symphony Orchestra presents itself as an American original.  The great conductor founded it just over 50 years ago, and for the past 20 years Leon Botstein has been wielding the baton and carrying on the tradition.  That tradition?  Curated concerts – the word “curated” sounds humdrum, but the result is anything but – created around themes from the visual arts, literature, politics, and history, often unearthing rarely performed masterworks for well-deserved revival and revisiting familiar pieces in thrilling new interpretations.
