Classical weekend

When I went online last week to buy my tickets, I saw this performance was selling well. And why wouldn’t it – given that it’s a wonderful orchestra with a great program in a fabulous venue. Maybe I’ll see you this weekend at one of the American Symphony Orchestra performances conducted by Leon Botstein at the Fisher Center at Bard College.

Here are the details:

Friday, February 1 and Saturday, February 2

Debussy, Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun
Dukas, The Sorcerer's Apprentice
Scriabin, Piano Concerto in F-sharp minor, Op. 20

Soloist: Wui-Ming Gan, piano
Copland, Symphony No. 3

Both concerts begin at 8 p.m. in the Sosnoff Theater at the Fisher Center on the Bard College campus, Annandale-on-Hudson. (Pre-concert talk by ASO Composer-in-Residence Richard Wilson at 6:45 p.m.) Tickets: $20, 30, 35. To order: visit or call 845-758-7900.
