Austin Symphony Orchestra presents Hemispheric Sounds
The Austin Symphony Orchestra presents Hemispheric Sounds, featuring pianist Stewart Goodyear and conductor Peter Bay.
Never performed before by the ASO, Beethoven's famous Emperor Piano Concerto christens the stage at the hands of Goodyear. The 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."
