The Bard College Conservatory of Music presented an all-Romantic program on Sunday afternoon with fog swirling about Sosnoff Theater. They opened with Czech composer Vitӗzslav Novák’s In the Tatra Mountains (1907), a late Romantic landscape tableaux in the vein of Alexander Borodin’s In the Steppes of Central Asia (1880). Rich in melodies reminiscent of Rimski-Korsakov, Novák painted threatening clouds, then an enormous tempest, the conclusion mercifully bathing in peaceful sunlight. Evocative and short, this warm-up piece set a pleasant mood.
