  • Adam Schoenberg: Finding Rothko
  • Aaron Copland: Lincoln Portrait, Peter van de Graaff, narrator
  • Leonard Bernstein: Arias and Barcarolles, Kathryn Leemhuis, mezzo-soprano, Paul Scholten, baritone

In honor of Leonard Bernstein’s 100th birthday, we celebrate the legacy of one of the most influential modern-day musicians with home-grown works by the composer himself (Arias and Barcarolles), a composer whose music he championed (Aaron Copland), and a young composer, Adam Schoenberg, who has quickly risen to prominence in the American orchestra scene. Notable radio personality Peter van de Graaff narrates Lincoln Portrait with a message of brotherhood and unity that is as powerful and resonant today as when it was written in the dark days of World War II. Schoenberg’s Finding Rothko is a luminous tribute to one of America’s best-known painters of the twentieth century.
