The Maestro Turns 70

The Maestro Turns 70

St. Michael's Church - 225 West 99th Street, New York, NY, USA

Experience a monumental collection of expressionist choral music in a single concert. 

"Oh my, I’m turning 70! Recalling the description of expressionism by
musicologist Donald J. Grout, I feel isolated and helpless in the grip
of forces I do not understand, and I am prey to inner conflict, tension,
anxiety, fear, and all the elemental irrational drives of the
subconscious, and in irritated rebellion against established order and
accepted forms. I may as well embrace this fateful day by conducting
some of the most extraordinary, passionate, and emotive expressionist
choral pieces in the repertory. I guarantee you will never forget this
concert. At the very least, it will be extremely cathartic (for me as
well, if i survive it!!)" --Harold Rosenbaum, conductor
