Music of Conscience

This Saturday, June 1, as part of its powerful season-ending series “Music of Conscience,” the New York Philharmonic will feature “Symphony No. 1” written in 1990 by Manhattan School of Music alum the composer John Corigliano as a tribute to musicians who lost their lives to HIV-AIDS.

“Everyone had fear,” he said in a recent interview. “You would be watching friends die, and wondering if you were next. And musicians were affected enormously.”
