    Classics IV Symphony of Nature

    The Beautiful Sounds and Sights of Mother Earth

    Jung-Ho Pak, Conductor - Irina Muresanu, Violin
    The beauty of Nature portrayed in the mystical song of whales and the flight of a lark exquisitely personified by violinist Irina Muresanu.

    In nature’s sublime way, the majestic song of whales emerges like a giant mythical bird in Hovhaness’ And God Created Great Whales. World-class violinist Irina Muresanu exquisitely personifies a lark in Williams’ The Lark Ascending, soaring high into the skies until its song is lost on “aerial rings.” The Romanian-born violinist takes bow to strings to express her affinity for her native land in Enescu’s Rumanian Rhapsodies No.1. Illustrating his intense love of the natural world, Beethoven vividly paints a landscape in his “Pastoral Symphony.” Copland provides a lyrical and energetic arrangement of the familiar celebration tune.

    Arr. Aaron Copland - Happy Anniversary
    Alan Hovhaness - And God Created Great Whales, Op. 229, No. 1
    Ralph Vaughan Williams - Lark Ascending
    Georges Enescu - Rumanian Rhapsody in A major, Op. 11, No. 1
    Ludwig van Beethoven - Symphony No. 6 in F major, Op. 68, “Pastoral”
