Ralph Vaughan Williams [1910] - Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis

Ralph Vaughan Williams pictured here

Conductor - Barry Wordsworth [1994]
Orchestra - The New Queen's Hall Orchestra

Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis is a work for string orchestra by the British composer Ralph Vaughan Williams. The work takes its name from the original composer of the melody, Thomas Tallis (c. 1505 – 1585).

My favorite classical recording. -pb

Antonín Dvořák [1893] - Symphony No. 9 | IV. Allegro con fuoco


Conductor: Gerard Schwarz
Orchestra: All-Star Orchestra

At its premiere in Carnegie Hall in 1893, each movement of Dvořák’s Ninth Symphony “From the New World” was met with thunderous applause, when Dvořák felt obliged to stand up and bow. This was one of the greatest public triumphs of Dvořák's career.

Claude Debussy [1910] - Prelude No. 1: "Danseuses de Delphes"


Christopher Jessup - piano

Debussy's Danseuses de Delphes (Dancers of Delphi) was inspired by a sculpture on exhibit at the Louvre. The music evokes images of Ancient Greece, whose culture was then popular in many Parisian intellectual circles. A masterpiece of atmosphere, the work is hardly a great challenge to the pianist's technique, but quite interpretively demanding.
