The Conductor

This week, we broadcasted the Sarasota Orchestra’s “Classical Romance” on Tuesday, March 31st. Initially, the concert was performed in November and included the orchestra’s guest conductor  Gerard Schwarz. He is the Music Director of the All-Star Orchestra that accumulates musicians from America’s top leading orchestras.[1] Gerard Schwarz possesses an astonishing repertoire that captivates listeners and audiences alike.

The Compositions

In addition, the broadcasted concert features renowned orchestral compositions from legendary composers. These works include performances of Richard Strauss’s “Don Juan,” Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s “Piano Concerto No. 20,” and Antonín Dvořák’s “Symphony No. 6.” All of these works coincide neatly with one another and made for a promising concert in November. The orchestra accurately transmits emotions presented in these works through feelings of joy and melancholy.
