As a prelude to Dvořák's beloved Piano Quintet, we will hear quintessentially American music, including ever-popular Gerswhin and the world premiere of a song cycle by Bruce Adolphe, composed for soprano Angel Blue, well-known to Lincoln Center audiences from her recent performances of Porgy and Bess.
