Bernstein, with Conrad Tao and the BSO at Tanglewood

Conrad Tao plays piano under the arched ceilings of the Church of the Incarnation in New York City. He sits in profile, holding one hand above the keys and looking off into the distance expectantly.

Dima Slobodeniouk leads the BSO in Bernstein’s Age of Anxiety, a piece inspired by W.H. Auden’s Pulitzer prize-winning poem of the same name, featuring piano soloist Conrad Tao. The concert closes with Brahms’s dramatic, sweeping Symphony No. 3, which explores the happiness—and—loneliness of freedom.
