About

The All-Star Orchestra gives you a front row seat to the world’s greatest music, performed by top players chosen from over 30 great American orchestras, and conducted by Gerard Schwarz. The programmes feature complete performances of popular masterpieces and world premieres of new works by leading American composers. Filmed in High-Definition with multiple cameras in and around the orchestra, the All-Star Orchestra celebrates the symphonic experience in the 21st century.

Programme 13: Russian Treasures
Mussorgsky - Pictures at an Exhibition (orch. Ravel)
The beloved orchestral showpiece is a series of imaginative musical portraits, including “The Gnome,” the “Ballet of the Unhatched Chicks in Their Shells” and the spectacular Finale, “The Great Gate of Kiev”.
Prokofiev - Romeo and Juliet
Excerpts from the famous ballet include: Capulets and Montagues, the Dance of the Knights, Portrait of Young Juliet, Scene at the Ball, the Fight, and The Death of Tybalt.

Programme 14: Northern Lights
Sibelius - Symphony no.2
A pinnacle of Nordic Romanticism. The grand, expansive melodies and searing harmonies have been called the musical equivalents of fire and ice. This is the most famous of the Finnish composer’s symphonies.

“The performances are uniformly excellent. The musicianship on display is always good, at times astonishing.” – Audiophile Audition

“Here it is, folks: Music Education 101 for the 21st century!” – Fanfare
