We're back in Music Hall in Cincinnati for the second half of this. Concluding concert of the 1970 main thrust of. The tributes rebel conducting and on the second half we will feature the PRA copy of some 20. Number three. As the guest conductor for this concert he has been artistic director of New York City Opera for the past 13 years and has made frequent guest appearances with leading orchestras including the New York Philharmonic the Boston Symphony Orchestras of Chicago Philadelphia Los Angeles Washington D.C. and the Israelis.

He was Austrian by birth and is also known for his interest in contemporary music. His list of world includes works by such composers as Floyd. The Symphony Number three up for coffee is. Quite an interesting work. His opera the flaming angel was not much of a success. But he was so attached to the music that he wrote for the opera that he decided to turn it into a symphony. It's seemingly obsessed him and this third symphony is the result Pierre Monteux conducted its premiere on May 17 thousand nine hundred twenty nine Paris. Then pick up your own. It is possible to listen to it as strictly as a symphony
or it is possible if you know the opera to find some parallels there. Segment after the concert master has come on stage and he's now. Presiding over the tuning of the orchestra. The symphony does not try to retell the story of the opera but the operatic score does for any of several themes which are developed in the symphony. And although the work is intensely dramatic in itself it is classical and for the first movement Mod. is in general a violent and passionate second movement andante is somber and mystical curious to tell how coming on stage to combat. It's got to the third movement is looking like a totally unprovoked. Get money out of the forest and the finale begins countdown to a muscle that returns to the mood of medieval mysticism. But in a darker tone Julius rebel now conducts the Cincinatti something orchestra pre-coffee up some funny Number three
