San Rafael, CA (PRWEB) October 19, 2013
The Kanbar Center for the Performing Arts at the Osher Marin JCC is proud to present Mill Valley Philharmonic, an award-winning community orchestra providing dedicated volunteer musicians the opportunity to rehearse and perform orchestral repertoire.
Today MVP offers three pieces: Dvorak’s Symphony #9, which is popularly known as the New World Symphony, and was composed by Antonín Dvořák in 1893 while he was the director of the National Conservatory of Music of America from 1892 to 1895. It is by far his most popular symphony, and one of the most popular in the romantic repertoire. In older literature and recordings this symphony is often indicated as Symphony No. 5. Neil Armstrong took a recording of the New World Symphony to the Moon during the Apollo 11 mission, the first Moon landing, in 1969.
Pacific 231 is an orchestral work by Arthur Honegger, written in 1923. It is one of his most frequently performed works. The popular interpretation of the piece is that it depicts a steam locomotive, an interpretation that is supported by the title of the piece. Honegger, however, insisted that he wrote it as an exercise in building momentum while the tempo of the piece slows. He originally titled it Mouvement Symphonique, only giving it the name Pacific 231 after it was finished.
Samuel Coleridge-Taylor (15 August 1875 – 1 September 1912) was an English composer who achieved such success that he was once called the "African Mahler".
