The Albany Symphony Orchestra returns to the Spring For Music festival, having performed in the inaugural edition in 2011. On tap this year is an all-American program featuring a suite from John Harbison's opera The Great Gatsby; Gershwin's Second Rhapsody, with piano soloist Kevin Cole; and the local premiere of Morton Gould's Symphony No. 3. The Albany Symphony recorded this four-movement work from 1946, which spans moods ranging from stormy to sardonic.
