Performance Notes

× The Age of Anxiety": A W.H. Auden Salon"" with Richard Collier on Sunday, September 22, 2019, 2:30-5p, at the home of Susan and Jim Acquistapace in Berkeley, CA. We heard the Bernstein Symphony No. 2 inspired by Auden’s 1947 poem. Now explore the poem itself, which Bernstein described as “one of the most shattering examples of pure virtuosity in the history of English poetry.” In his Tenth Berkeley Symphony Salon, Richard Collier will lead the discussion of “The Age of Anxiety” and other poems from Auden’s rich and varied collection. As an Assistant Professor of English at UC Berkeley, Richard was awarded a Distinguished Teacher Award.
