Start the Season: October's PodCast

May I have a drum roll, please?

The first concert of the new season - Old & New Worlds - is coming up on the first weekend of October. Alexander Kerr will be the soloist for The Four Seasons in Buenos Aires by Astor Piazzolla. The concert opens with Rossini's Overture to Semiramide and concludes with one of the most-loved symphonies in the repertoire, Antonin Dvořák's "New World."

Stuart Malina and I got together for a conversation about the new season (you can hear that season preview podcast, here) as well as the first concert.

You can hear the OCTOBER PODCAST, here.

Performances are Saturday, October 3rd at 8pm and Sunday, October 4th at 3pm at the Forum in downtown Harrisburg.

You can read one of my up-close & personal posts about the Dvořák symphony here and watch a performance of the entire New World Symphony in this video montage with Herbert von Karajan conducting the Vienna Philharmonic (from a 1985 Telemondial recording) where I've pointed out musical highlights timed to the video clips.
