Faculty Tuesdays (2019)

In our tech-obsessed, post-nuclear, deeply divided "age of anxiety," Bernstein's monumental Second Symphony, tonight presented on two pianos, finds the faith to go on. The duo of Hsing-ay Hsu and Jeremy Reger also presents Gershwin's exhilarating "An American in Paris" and Ravel's thrilling, decadent, fin de siècle period piece "La Valse."

Featuring Hsing-ay Hsu and Jeremy Reger, piano
