A pair of delightful and familiar works headline this light-hearted program that also shines the spotlight on NJSO Principal Tuba Derek Fenstermacher. TAN DUN Internet Symphony No. 1, "Eroica" Known for his score to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Tan Dun surprisingly quotes Beethoven's "Eroica" in this this engaging piece written for the first YouTube Orchestra. VAUGHAN WILLIAMS Tuba Concerto An affectionate ode to one of the orchestra's lowest-pitched instruments: the tuba. The first concerto for the instrument written by a major composer. SAINT-SAENS Carnival of the Animals Witty and rollicking. Kids and adults alike will enjoy a romp through the animal kingdom with Saint-Saens' classic for duo piano and orchestra. RAVEL Bolero With its poised, relentless pulse, this sensual work memorably formed the soundtrack to Dudley Moore's reveries in the film 10.
