All-Star Orchestra: Episode 3

April 3, 2020

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 "The New World and Its Music" and features Avanti!" by Ellen Taaffe Zwilich and Dvořák's Symphony No. 9.

Inspired by American dreams and legends, Dvořák created some of his greatest works while living in the United States, above all the “New World” Symphony. This program illuminates the multiple stories and influences – Native American, African-American, and Czech –that Dvořák transformed in his most beloved work. Ellen Taaffe Zwilich’s Avanti! offers a contemporary interpretation of the American archetype of “moving on.”

We hope you have been enjoying this series! Be sure to tune in on Monday for the next episode!
