Galloway, N.J. - The Bay Atlantic Symphony will perform selections by the late German and Soviet composer Alfred Schnittke, along with Brahms, at the Stockton Performing Arts Center on Sunday, March 19.  “Conversation with the Conductor,” Jed Gaylin, will be held in the L-Wing Gallery at 1 p.m. 

Show time is 2 p.m. Tickets are $32 and may be ordered online or by calling the Box Office at (609) 652-9000.  The Box Office is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 90 minutes before the performance. 

St. Petersburg native Lydia Frumkin brings her tremendous artistry on the piano, along with a deep commitment to Schnittke’s concerto, a harrowing and yet lyrical work of beauty and dissidence. A similar mood ushers in Brahms’ stirring First Symphony, but yields to joyful exuberance in this epic work.

The Bay Atlantic Symphony, Stockton’s orchestra-in-residence, will perform the following selections:

Schnittke—Piano Concerto

Lydia Frumkin, piano


Brahms Symphony No. 1
