Dvorak: Symphony No. 8
Putting together an orchestra program is a bit like asking a couple of cooks into the kitchen. The Orchestra administration might want to program something thatíll make for good box office; the soloist might want to suggest the new concerto she or heís been working up; and then thereís the conductor... When IvŠn Fischer agreed to conduct The Cleveland Orchestra for this concert, he wanted to shake things up a bit. So, he picked a piece that the Orchestra had never played before, and one that would offer a nice sharp contrast to Dvorak's popular Eighth Symphony. He chose the whimsical Symphonic Minutes by Erno Dohnanyi.
