Philadelphia Orchestra

Neeme Järvi, conductor


The audio for this program has been removed, per American Public Media's rights agreement with this orchestra.






Program:
Schubert: Overture to Rosamunde
Schubert: Symphony No. 4
Strauss: Death and Transfiguration
Hindemith: Symphonic Metamorphosis


Description:
Neeme Järvi knows all about dramatic change first-hand , since his homeland, Estonia, had essentially been hijacked by the former Soviet Union. Something about that experience begged to be evoked in music, and so he created this concert program, which is all about dynamic transformation.
