The Albany Symphony Orchestra Presents William Tell & More
The Albany Symphony will present a thrilling program of Rossini’s “William Tell” Overture, Schubert’s Symphony No. 9, “The Great,” and the world premiere of “Three Manhattan Bridges,” a major new work by Michael Torke featuring piano soloist Joyce Yang, in concerts at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon.
"Three Manhattan Bridges" was commissioned by the Albany Symphony and written expressly for Yang, Torke’s favorite pianist. The work was inspired by Torke’s adopted home, New York City. Its three movements are: “George Washington Bridge,” “Queensboro Bridge,” and “Brooklyn Bridge.”
To tell us more we welcome Albany Symphony Orchestra maestro, David Alan Miller and composer Michael Torke.
