At Bard: Nadia Boulanger legacy of modernities>>

August 15, 2021 @ 12:00 am - 11:59 pm

Few figures have exerted greater influence on the classical music of the 20th and 21st centuries than conductor and composer Nadia Boulanger, one of the greatest pedagogues in music history. Just consider some of the famous American composers who studied with her: Elliott Carter, Aaron Copland, Philip Glass, Douglas Moore, Quincy Jones and Thea Musgrave. The 31st Bard Music Festival, titled Nadia Boulanger and her World, explores the French musical milieu that shaped her and her legacy.

At the Bard Music Festival, Aug. 6-15, the Boulanger focus will involve 12 themed programs that have the potential to be among the most important events of the summer season. And they are available, for purchase, as UPSTREAMS.

Among programs of note include is Boulanger’s Legacy: Modernities on Aug. 15, with music of Elliott Carter, Astor Piazzolla, Geroge Walker, Pierre Boulez, Philip Glass and Thea Musgrave. <<Click here for more info and virtual tickets.>>
