Symphony No. 7
Tuesday, May 24, 2016

LaSells Stewart Center, OSU Exceptional classical music in Corvallis
 

Conducted by music director Marlan Carlson, the orchestra brings classical music from Bach to Bernstein to Corvallis. Distinguished local and visiting soloists are a regular feature of our concerts. Choral music, conducted by Steven Zielke, OSU director of choral studies, is a treasured part of the season.

The Symphony also helps to bring outstanding student musicians to OSU. These students, who major in everything from engineering to zoology, are excited to play in the orchestra.

Bruckner: Symphony No. 8

Follow this link to purchase reserved seat tickets to the Corvallis-OSU Symphony "Alpine Journey" concert.

The massive 8th Symphony of Anton Bruckner will be presented by the Orchestra on this program. According to Maestro Carlson, this work exemplifies Bruckner’s deeply held religious convictions as well as his lifelong connection to the mountains of his native Austria. The brass writing in this symphony is especially powerful, and as might be expected, Maestro Carlson will have massive forces on stage for this performance.

Music Transcendent
TUESDAY, MAY 23, 2017
7:30 PM

Debussy: La Mer
R. Strauss: Die Frau ohne Schatten Suite
Wagner: Scenes from Götterdämmerung

Follow this link to purchase reserved seat tickets to the Corvallis-OSU Symphony "Music Transcendent" concert.

The music of archetypical French composer, Claude Debussy, and the music of archetypical German composers, Richard Wagner and Richard Strauss, will be the highlights of this final program of the season. 

To open the program, the Orchestra will present Debussy’s evocative set of symphonic sketches, La Mer.  Like many French “Impressionistic” painters around the turn of the century, Debussy was captivated by nature in all its glorious and ever-changing transcendence. For Maestro Carlson, La Mer represents the very epitome of Impressionism in music. 

In contrast to this French masterpiece, the Orchestra will also present operatic extracts from the Germanic repertoire. Die Frau ohne Schatten Fantasy (The Woman without a Shadow) was extracted by Strauss from his opera by the same name. This Fantasy is not a readily accessible score, but in every respect it is typically Straussian.

To close the program, the Orchestra will perform excerpts from Wagner’s Götterdämmerung (Twilight of the Gods), the 4th and final opera of his Ring cycle based on a collection of Nordic myths. As in the February program, the powerful brass section of the orchestra will be fully utilized.
