Short Musical Classics
While many of the composers of the selections contained in this program may not be household names (e.g., Boccherini, Orff, Pachelbel, Albinoni), the melodies they wrote have endured for centuries. Whether written as “stand alone” pieces for a string quartet or, in some cases, a full symphony orchestra, many of these works have been incorporated into a variety of Hollywood films over the years, making them familiar to even the most casual listener.
During this program we will have an opportunity to watch videos of live concert performances of a number of these pieces and briefly learn a bit about their origin and the composers who created them.
