A celebratory finish to the Albany Symphony Orchestra's 2010-2011 Season is as good an expression as any to describe last Saturday's final concert on April 9th. The program entitled "Music for Lent" included three pieces beginning with N. Rimsky-Korsakov's (1844-1908) Russian Easter Festival Overture, selections from Pietro Mascagni's (1863-1945) one act opera Cavalleria Rusticana and the short oratorio Christ on the Mount of Olives by Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827).
On Saturday evening, Feb. 19, the Albany Symphony Orchestra's program theme contained a duality, one personal, the other visual.
