Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, we will be sharing an episode of our Music Director Gerard Schwarz's Emmy-Award Winning PBS TV Series with the All-Star Orchestra.
Today's episode is entitled "What Makes a Masterpiece?" and features Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 and Harmonium Mountain by Philip Glass.
This program explores the creative process, tracing the genesis of Beethoven’s iconic symphony, and the development of a new work by a modern master. Introductory features demonstrate how short rhythmic and melodic motives evolve into vast symphonic organisms. Interviews include leading Beethoven scholars and the All-Star musicians.
We hope you have been enjoying this series! Be sure to tune in on Friday for the next episode!
