Afternoon Classics - Tuesday, April 7, 2009

Pledge breaks are always such fun! Really, it is a time for creative programming and chatter, it takes a lot to let people know about how we need their support. The creative programming for this break is to do a retrospective of the past 6 months of programs. So here we go:
Nagao:  Lovers on a Celestial Sphere (2006), Kenneth Tse &l Nobuya Sagawa - Saxophones.
Sargon:  Homage to Hafiz, Erin Hannegin - oboe, Simon Sargon - piano.
Griffes:  Poem for flute and orchestra, Carol Wincene - flute, Joann Falleta conducting the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra.
Gould:   Derivations for Clarinet and band, Benny Goodman - clarinet, Morton Gould leading the Columbia Jazz Combo.
Hindemith:  Symphonic Metamorphoses on a Theme of Carl Maria von Weber, Herbert Blomstedt conducting the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra. Part of the fun of this piece is its name which is almost as long as the music!
Haydn:  Symphony No. 22 in E flat, Hob. I:22 "The Philosopher", Sir Adrian Shepherd leading Cantilena.
Villa-Lobos:  Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5, Rene Fleming - soprano and the strings of the New World Symphony.
Bartok:  Dance Suite, Sz 77, Pierre Boulez conducting the Chicago Symphony.
O'Connor:  Strings & Threads Suite, Sharon Isbin - guitar, Mark O'Connor - violin. 
Mendelssohn:  String Symphony No. 5 in B flat, Ross Pople conducting the London Festival Orchestra.
