Bard College News Release

FISHER CENTER TO HOST RECITAL BY
SOPRANO DAWN UPSHAW AND PIANIST RICHARD GOODE

February 9 Program to Benefit
Bard College Conservatory of Music Scholarship Fund

ANNANDALE-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. - On Thursday, February 9, at 8 p.m., The
Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts at Bard College will
host a rare recital by two of the music world's most renowned performers:
soprano Dawn Upshaw and pianist Richard Goode. Proceeds from this benefit
performance will go to the scholarship fund of the Bard College Conservatory
of Music, on whose faculty both Upshaw and Goode serve. The program
includes works by Debussy, Ives, Bach, and Berg, and Schoenberg's Opus
15 'Book of the Hanging Gardens.'

Dawn Upshaw has achieved international celebrity as a singer of opera
and concert repertoire ranging from the sacred works of Bach to the
freshest sounds of today. Her acclaimed performances on the opera stage
comprise the great Mozart roles as well as modern works by Stravinsky,
Poulenc, and Messiaen. From Salzburg, Glyndebourne, and Paris to the
Metropolitan Opera, where she began her career in 1984 and has sung
nearly 300 performances, Upshaw has also championed numerous new works
created for her, including The Great Gatsby by John Harbison; the
Grawemeyer Award-winning L'Amour de Loin by Kaija Saariaho (recently
released on DVD); John Adams's nativity oratorio El Nino; and Osvaldo
Golijov's chamber opera Ainadamar and song cycle Ayre, the latter recorded
for Deutsche Grammophon.

A three-time Grammy Award winner, Upshaw is featured on more than 50
recordings (including the million-selling Symphony No. 3 by Henryk
Gorecki), a dozen recital recordings, and several discs of music theater
repertoire on Nonesuch. As a recitalist Dawn Upshaw has premiered more
than 40 works in the past decade. She began her career as a winner of
the Metropolitan Opera Young Artists Development Program and the Young
Concert Artists Auditions. She is artistic director of the new Vocal
Arts Graduate Program at Bard.

Richard Goode studied with Elvira Szigeti and Claude Frank, with Nadia
Reisenberg at the Mannes College of Music, and with Rudolf Serkin at the
Curtis Institute. He has won many prizes, including the Young Concert
Artists Award, First Prize in the Clara Haskil Competition, the Avery
Fisher Prize, and a Grammy Award with clarinetist Richard Stoltzman. His
remarkable interpretations of Beethoven came to national attention when
he played all five concerti with the Baltimore Symphony under David
Zinman, and when he performed the complete cycle of sonatas at New York's
92nd Street Y and Kansas City's Folly Theater. Goode has made more than
two dozen recordings, including Mozart concerti with the Orpheus Chamber
Orchestra, and chamber and solo works of Brahms, Schubert, Schumann, and
George Perle. He is the first American-born pianist to have recorded the
complete Beethoven Sonatas; the recording was nominated for a 1994 Grammy
Award. As a recitalist, he has become a favorite throughout Europe as
well as the United States, and appears regularly in Paris, London,
Amsterdam, Vienna, and the leading cities of Germany and Italy. In Berlin,
Die Welt proclaimed, 'The musical world has a new pianist, who is able
to play Beethoven like nobody else.' Goode serves, with Mitsuko Uchida,
as coartistic director of the Marlboro Music School and Festival in
Marlboro, Vermont. He is a member of the faculty (piano master classes)
at the Bard College Conservatory of Music.

All proceeds from the February 9 concert will go toward the scholarship
fund for students of the Bard College Conservatory of Music. Tickets are
$20, $35, and $45. To purchase tickets, call the Fisher Center box office
at 845-758-7900 or visit the Fisher Center website: www.bard.edu/fishercenter.

ABOUT THE CONSERVATORY
The mission of The Bard College Conservatory of Music is to provide the
best possible preparation for a person dedicated to a life immersed in
the creation and performance of music.

Music, like all art, engages the mind and the heart. It redefines
boundaries and questions limits in order to make a meaningful statement
about the human condition. The education of the mind is therefore as
important as the education of the fingers. The greatest musicians not
only have the technical mastery to communicate effectively, but are also
deeply curious, and equally adept at analytical and emotional modes of
thought.

Every student in the Conservatory is also a student in the College.
We believe deeply in the value of an education in the liberal arts and
sciences, not as a luxury but as the best preparation for functioning
competitively and creatively. By strengthening free inquiry, the liberal
arts and sciences build and protect the freedom to question old models,
preserve the past, and initiate change, in music as in other fields.
Students in the Conservatory participate fully in the life of the College
<http://www.bard.edu/campus/> by pursuing a major in a field other than
music.

In close relationship with their liberal arts education, Conservatory
students receive an unparalleled musical education, working closely with
world-class master teachers.

The double-degree program is demanding. But because the Conservatory
and the College are small and flexible, and because of the close integration
of the two, students are helped to rise to the challenges.  They are
also be helped by belonging to a community with a shared belief in the
importance of the education of the whole person.  The artistry derived
from involvement with the members of the Conservatory faculty is enriched
by serious participation in Bard's scholarly community.  No place is
better positioned to ensure the success of this delicate symbiosis than
Bard College.
