PERFORMERS Nashville Symphony Giancarlo Guerrero, conductor Ingrid Fliter, piano PROGRAM Chopin - Piano Concerto No. 1 The Earth - An HD Odyssey, featuring: John Adams - Short Ride in a Fast Machine R. Strauss - Also sprach Zarathustra Following the hugely successful performance of The Planets - An HD Odyssey, The Earth - An HD Odyssey is the second film in the series - this time focused on our own planet, with stunning high-definition images of Earth taken from NASA missions. The featured music is John Adams electrifying Short Ride in a Fast Machine, which accompanies images of the space shuttle taking off, and Strauss epic tone poem Also sprach Zarathustra. Also sprach Zarathustra is best known from its appearance in 2001: A Space Odyssey, where the opening of the piece is used to hugely dramatic effect. But the entire work is equally stunning - particularly when experienced live.
