The American Symphony Orchestra presents “Sounds of the American Century” conducted by Leon Botstein.

New York City composers of the mid-20th century sought to define a new American sensibility in orchestral music. The abstract works of Robert Mann, the legendary founder of the Juilliard Quartet, and Jacob Druckman explored the possibilities of orchestral color and sound. Vivian Fine and William Schuman brought their compositional craft to the classical tradition of orchestral music. Their works are marked by vitality, brilliance, and structural clarity.
