Explore music from George Gerswhin, Siegfried Matthus, John Williams and Joachim Raff at Lost Romantic Symphonies

October 11, 2016

Maestro Morgan once again shines the spotlight on Romantic composers with Joachim Raff’s Symphony No. 3. Raff comped his Symphony No. 3 in Weisbaden in 1869 and it premiered in 1870 in Weimar. It is one of his most successful works and earned him his reputation as a symphonist. One critic called it “the best symphony of modern times,” while a fellow composer described it as “colossal.”

Oakland Symphony presents Lost Romantic Symphonies on Friday, November 18 at 8PM at the Paramount Theatre. The Oakland Symphony Youth Orchestra, back from their successful performing tour of Cuba, will join the Symphony on stage for George Gershwin’s Cuban Overture to open the night.
