Hemispheric Sounds Presented by Austin Symphony Orchestra Live at the Long Center
Never performed before by the ASO, Beethoven’s famous Emperor Piano Concerto christens the stage at the hands of Stewart Goodyear, proclaimed “a phenomenon” by the Los Angeles Times. The Hemispheric Sounds concert opens with Lyric for Strings by Pulitzer Prize winner George Walker, considered one of America’s greatest composers. William Grant Still’s expressive 5th Symphony, Western Hemisphere, paints a beautiful picture as he describes it as, “when the new day dawns, the lands of the Western Hemisphere are raised from the bosom of the Atlantic.”
