Losing. In Cincinnati we present another concert by the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra recorded during a performance by a deputy U.S. University of Cincinnati radio station. These programs are made possible through a grant from the national educational radio network. The Greater Cincinnati Foundation and with the cooperation of the Cincinnati musicians associate music director of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra is Max Rudolf. And the soloist on this program is Nathan Milstein. Mr. Milstein will perform the Tchaikovsky violin concerto in D major. And after intermission Mr Rudolf and the Orchestra will play the Beethoven Symphony Number 3 in E-flat major. The program opens with the overture to the opera the Bartered Bride by Smetana. The overture was first performed at the premiere of The Opera in its original form on May 30th 1866 at the small provisional theater in Prague. The premiere was not a success and several versions of the Opera
were heard before it was sung in its present form in 1870 when it was well received in 1950 to 2000 performance of the work was given at the Prague National Theater. We await the appearance of conductor Max Rudolf. And now. Mr. Rudolph enters warmly greeted by this musical audience. We are to hear the first offering on this program. Overture to the project bright. Red bricks metal. Illinois.
When. I'm with. You. Program has begun with the overture to the Bartered Bride by.
Dr. Max Rudolf now bowed to this music audience. And with the concert master. Bows again. And. Leaves the stage. This effervescent overture universally popular on the concert stage. Are intermission feature on this program will be an interview with Max Rudolf the subject is the art of conducting. And appropriately the work used for illustration. Is the Beethoven erotica which will be performed after the intermission. Scheduled next as the appearance of the guest artist Nathan Milstein who will perform the Tchaikovsky concerto in D major. Mr. Milstein last appeared with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra in 1957. Tchaikovsky composed his violin concerto in a single month in the year 1878 the same year incidentally as the Brahms violin concerto. However the work had to wait three years before it was performed publicly because
the great violinist Leopold power for whom Tchaikovsky wrote it pronounced the work unplayable. Later our revised several passages in the concerto and ultimately performed it but never knew it because our played it at a memorial concert in honor of Tchaikovsky just 12 days after the composer's death. It is quite fitting that Nathan Milstein should be playing this concerto because Milstein was a pupil of Leopold hours. They Tchaikovsky violin concerto today ranks as one of the four greatest concertos in violin literature. The others being the Beethoven the Brahms and the Mendelssohn. The first movement I like Grandma Toronto features only a short orchestral introduction and contrary to the usual procedure of the time the performer introduces the main subject of the movement. The second movement is a concert Neta and the final movement Allegro Simo follows without pause. This last movement features dance
rhythm in the style of the Russian pop. And now comes on stage accompanied by Max. I don't know what's going to come. Doctor warmly greeted by this musical audience. Just a few moments we're to hear Nathan Milstein with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra reforming the take off the Violin Concerto in D major. War.
