Koussevitzky Legacy Celebration

The Library of Congress May 2, 2014 at 8pm 
Tony Arnold, soprano / Steven Beck, piano / David Fulmer, conductor / Alan R. Kay, clarinet / Momenta Quartet

This special concert celebrates the merger of the two Serge Koussevitzky Foundations into a single entity housed in the Library of Congress.

Serge Koussevitzky championed the music of his time throughout his career, and since his death in 1951 the Foundation established in his name has continued to support the music of living composers. Curated by Koussevitzky Board members Ursula Oppens and Fred Sherry, this evening’s concert includes works by an august sampling of composers who have received the Foundation’s assistance. Featuring top artists with deep connections to this music, the concert honors the Koussevitzky legacy in the most appropriate way—by bringing this repertoire to life in the concert hall.
