Our Bernstein festival continues with “Prelude, Fugue, and Riffs,” a flashy score that features our Principal Clarinet Anthony McGill. Jazz pianist Makoto Ozone (“Thrilling, virtuosic” — The New York Times) is the soloist in Gershwin’s all-American favorite “Rhapsody in Blue” — infectiously melodic, bluesy, romantic at heart — and the composer’s voice in Bernstein’s “The Age of Anxiety.”
