Carnegie Hall Presents

Great American Orchestras I

A vast range of orchestral sound and emotional power is displayed in the orchestral scores that fill this inspired series. The San Francisco Symphony finds an unexpected dialogue between American works and Viennese classics, the Boston Symphony Orchestra spotlights French scores written for or inspired by theater, and Robert Spano leads the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra through Britten’s chilling meditation against war.
