    September 16 at Symphony Space

    Leon Botstein, the charismatic conductor of the American Symphony Orchestra, is renowned for his progressive approach; here, he’ll deconstruct and discuss the story behind Dvorák’s gorgeous “New World” Symphony before his very capable group plays it.

  2. 2. “Works & Process”

    September 16 and 17 at the Guggenheim

    The museum’s cozy theater is the perfect venue for intimate performances and panel discussions; this time, creative minds from the Boston Ballet explain what’s behind fresh pieces performed by the company’s dancers.
