BERNSTEIN: Symphonic Suite from 'On the Waterfront' IVES: 'The Unanswered Question'

Music of John Adams—arguably America’s greatest living composer—summons the chaotic origins of mankind’s most destructive creation. It’s paired with a suite from Bernstein’s gritty and iconic film score for On the Waterfront. This program also highlights the cosmic soundscape of a true American maverick, Charles Ives.
