In this illuminating concert, Principal Conductor Asher Fisch explores how great composers  transformed works originally conceived for solo keyboard into the orchestral masterpieces that we know and love.

The concert features Leopold Stokowski’s spectacular, “Hollywood” version of Bach’s famous  Toccata and Fugue.
