Description

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. The music is familiar to even the most casual listener. In today’s program you will watch videos of live performances and learn  about their origin and the composers.
