Our new semester music....what do you think?

Recommended Posts

Mostly, I'm wondering what you guys think on the Sebilus Symphony No. 2? I'm listening to bits and pieces. Looks nice n' all. But I dont think the audience will like it that much. Mostly, however, I love the ending - even tho a bit long, its neat and hits you in waves.

Our second piece is the Elgar (full) cello concerto. Sir Andrew Davis is our conductor! Oh yea!! And the CBC radio is (by sponsorship of Yamaha) recording a CD of it. Hmmm, I cant wait!

Sibelius 2 is a great symphony, but the 2nd movement is a bit too heavy for most audiences. Its very deep and incredibly passionate, something that only a true Sibelius fan would appreciate. The 1st movement is great, as are the others, but I think the last movement will be the real crowd pleaser.

We played this symphony earlier this semester. In fact, we have some sound clips if you want to download them. Here's the link:
