Leave a comment

The Detroit Symphony Orchestra will kick off its new series of free concerts via webcast on Saturday, October 3 at 8 PM EDT. To quote their announcement, “French pianist extraordinaire Jean-Yves Thibaudet returns to Detroit with Gershwin’s jazzy Concerto in F, and Leonard Slatkin conducts Strauss’ romantic suite from the comic opera, Der Rosenkavalier.”  Here’s the full program:

BERLIOZ Roman Carnival Overture
GERSHWIN Concerto in F
JACOB DRUCKMAN Mirage
STRAUSS Suite from Der Rosenkavalier

The DSO has been compiling a web-based archive of past performances, dubbed “DSO Replay.”   You can access over 100 pieces of music on demand for a $50 contribution to the DSO Annual Fund.  They also have a number of performances available for free on the DSO YouTube channel.

Here’s a taste:  the DSO performing “Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity” from Gustav Holst’s The Planets.
