BERLIOZ: Overture to Benvenuto Cellini, Op. 23
POULENC: Concerto in G minor for Organ, Timpani and Strings
SAINT-SAËNS: Symphony No. 3 in C minor, Op. 78: Organ Symphony
Please join us 45 minutes before the concert for "What's the Score?", a lively talk about the composers and the repertoire given by commentator Nuvi Mehta inside Copley Symphony Hall.
Copley Symphony Hall’s mighty Robert Morton theater organ takes center stage in two of the most famous orchestral works written for the “King of instruments.” Leading the concert will be Conductor Laureate Jahja Ling. Guest organist will be internationally-recognized San Diego native Chelsea Chen in her Jacobs Music Center debut.
The "Maestoso" theme of Camille Saint-Saëns' Organ Symphony was used in the 1970s pop sing "If I Had Words" by Scott Fitzgerald and Yvonne Keeley, a world-wide million-seller. Perhaps most famously, this same song and theme were heavily featured in the hit 1990s films Babe and Babe: Pig in the City.
This theme has also been the climactic music of Impressions de France, a film that has screened continuously at the Disney Epcot's France Pavilion since the park opened in 1982 in Florida.
