Corvallis-OSU Symphony

The Corvallis-Oregon State University Symphony string ensemble is presenting a free remote concert at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 22.

Directed by Maestro Marlan Carlson, the pre-recorded performance will be streamed online at: mu.oregonstate.edu/live. The webcast is open to the public.

Selected movements from Antonín Dvořák’s Serenade for Strings, Op. 22 open the program. Written in 1875 in just two weeks, the five-movement string serenade was composed on a smaller scale than Dvořák’s weightier symphonies and remains one of his most popular works.

The program continues with excerpts from Edvard Grieg’s Holberg Suite, Op. 40, a work originally written for piano in 1884 and later adapted by the composer for string orchestra. The five-movement work, written in the style of a Baroque-era dance suite, was composed on the occasion of the 200th birthday of the distinguished Norwegian writer Ludvig Holberg. Grieg originally penned the work for solo piano, adapting it a year later into the string orchestra version that the Corvallis-OSU Symphony string ensemble will perform.

W.A. Mozart’s Adagio and Fugue in c minor, KV. 546 and the opening movement of the Serenade for Strings Op. 13, KV. 525 “Eine kleine Nachtmusik” close the program. Long one of Mozart’s popular compositions, “Eine kleine Nachtmusik” is a lighthearted little “bon-bon” of a work, charming audiences and performers alike since its premiere in 1787.

The performance will be uploaded to the College of Liberal Arts YouTube channel at a later date.
