Other composers include John Corigliano, Jessie Montgomery, Viet Cuong, John Williams, Tania León, and more.
“We are thrilled to be able to share some of the greatest works of all times with our subscribers and patrons, especially after an enormously challenging, difficult year,” said Albany Symphony Music Director David Alan Miller. “We will perform many of our very favorite classics, from Scheherazade to Mozart’s Jupiter and Tchaikovsky’s Pathétique Symphonies. And, we will also celebrate many of the most exciting composers of our time, including Jessie Montgomery, Viet Cuong, and my dear friend Tania León. I’m looking forward to several exciting commissions and world premieres and feel so fortunate to be joined in my anniversary season by so many creative artists and great performers who mean so much to me.”
The season opens in October 2021 with Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3 Eroica, one of the most transformational works in music history. The musical catalogue glides from classics to modern composers, showcasing many talents through a variety of musicians.
