Notes & Reviews:

The multi-Emmy awarded All-Star Orchestra gives you a front row seat to the world's greatest music, performed by top players chosen from over 30 great American orchestras, and conducted by Gerard Schwarz. Two programs are featured on this DVD. Program 9: Gershwin's immortal Rhapsody in Blue is featured in the rarely heard original jazz-orchestra version from the 1924 premiere, with rising-star pianist Lola Astanova. This iconic work is paired with Aaron Copland's 1925 jazz-age classic "Music for the Theatre." Robert Beaser's "Ground O" offers a modern musical perspective of New York after 9/11; Program 10: Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's exotic orchestral showpiece Scheherazade is based on fantastical tales that - according to tradition - were told by the ingenious wife of a cruel Sultan so as to prolong her life for 1001 nights. Concertmaster David Kim conveys the voice of the wily heroine in virtuosic violin solos. Take a musical magic carpet ride between the worlds of Arabian folklore and Russian romanticism
