Program:
IVES: Unanswered Question
ADAMS: The Wound Dresser
BRITTEN: Sinfonia di Requiem, Op. 20
VAUGHAN WILLIAMS: Symphony No. 4 in F minor


Description:
Vaughan Williams describes his Fourth Symphony as dissonant and strange. He said, "It looks wrong, it sounds wrong, but it's right. I don't know whether I like it but it's what I meant." Hear the Oregon Symphony perform Vaughan Williams's Fourth live from Carnegie Hall.

Henry C. of Ghent, NY won this week's encore contest by correctly ID'ing Pines of Rome by Respighi.
