They are good. We're listening to a concert by the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. This concert marks the farewell appearance of music director emeritus. Max Rudolf who spent 12 years with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. He took command in one thousand fifty eight after 13 years as conductor and artistic administrator of the Metropolitan Opera. Before coming to this country. He was well known as both a symphony an opera conductor. In Sweden Czechoslovakia and in his native Germany. Maestro Rudolph has brought international acclaim to the Cincinnati orchestra. Among his many innovations were a unique program of in-school concerts. And exclusive long term recording contract. And an increase in the number of orchestra personnel. Also who to his credit was the orchestra selection by the U.S. State Department for a 10 week world tour
in 1066. And a five week European tour in 1968. That same year Maestro Rudolph submitted his resignation to accept an appointment with the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia. Where he will head the opera department and hold conducting classes beginning in the fall of 1070 in appreciation for his 12 years of service. The board of trustees and management of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra awarded Max Rudolph the honorary title of music director emeritus. In the second half of this concert we will hear the Symphony Number one in C Minor Opus sixty eight by Brahms who completed this great work in 1876. He brooded for over 20 years about what was to be his first symphony and early efforts began about 1854 ended up as parts of his first piano concerto and a German Requiem in 1862.
Brahms showed our human a version of the first movement of what was to be the C minor symphony. But it was 14 more years before the work was finished. By this time Brahms was forty three. Public reaction to the premiere performance was decidedly mixed. To the avant garde of that era. Brahms was too conservative. To the traditionalists. It was impossible. His intervals were too novel. His changes of mood to abrupt. His orchestration to complex. There were some however who realized that a masterpiece had arrived. The conductor found below for one referred to Brahms work as the Tenth Symphony meaning that it was a worthy successor to the nine symphonies of Beethoven. There once again is Max Rudolph who conducts the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra in the Symphony Number one in C Minor Opus 53 by rock.
