At Home with the Columbia Orchestra
While we're home and can't be together, we'd like to provide some musical resources for you!
If you miss hearing the Orchestra as much as we miss performing for you, here's a way to get your fix! While we don't have our concerts professionally filmed, we do make an archival reference video shot from backstage. To tide you over until we're together again, we're releasing some highlights we hope you'll love as Backstage Peeks.
A huge thank you to The Vertical Connection Carpet One, the sponsor of our cancelled Symphonic Pops concert, for sponsoring our Backstage Peeks! Their showroom is now open! Be sure to check out their website and support our local businesses!
First up, Dvorak's 8th Symphony is one of his sunniest works. Much like Beethoven's "Pastoral Symphony," its second movement suggests views of beautiful landscapes complete with a thunderstorm in the middle. We hope you enjoy!
Up next, we bring you the finale of Tchaikovsky's 4th Symphony.
We hope you enjoy the majestic finale of Saint-Saens' 3rd Symphony.
Next, listen to Mussorgsky's thrilling Night on Bald Mountain.
And now, the 1st movement of Brahms' sunny Second Symphony!
And here's Smetana's The Moldau, enhanced with the composer's description of each part of the music!
Here is the joyous 3rd movement of Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 6, "Pathetique."
Continuing Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 6, "Pathetique," here is the finale.
This week we return to James Lee III's Chuphshah! Harriet's Drive to Canaan.
We hope you will enjoy the moving Largo movement of Dvořák's "New World" Symphony.
Just in time to celebrate Stravinsky's June 17th birthday, here is his Rite of Spring.
This week we revisit the first movement of Schubert's "Unfinished" Symphony No. 8.
And a special extra peek this week, the second movement of Schubert's "Unfinished" Symphony as well.
