- Brahms—Symphony No. 3 in F Major: Although it debuted in 1883—with devotees of Brahms’s rival Wagner doing their best to sabotage the premiere—this symphony never went out of style. It can be heard in films such as Goodbye Again, in Frank Sinatra’s “Take My Love,” and in Civilization IV.
- Stravinsky—The Firebird Suite: Inspired by a fairytale from Russian folklore, this ballet score hits all the classic fairytale notes—a dashing prince captures the titular magical firebird, but releases it in exchange for help against a terrible evil, the demon Kastchei. The piece’s enchanting narrative, marked by flitting woodwinds and rumbling brass, captured the attention of the world upon its 1910 debut, and rocketed Stravinsky to international stardom.
- Walton—Viola Concerto: After being rejected by Lionel Tertis, the violist for which it was written, this concerto soon earned rave reviews, including the Manchester Guardian’s exclamation that young Walton was “a born genius.” Needless to say, that Tertis soon came around. Soloist Maia Hoffman takes the lead in this performance.
Portland Youth Philharmonic
As America's first youth orchestra, the Portland Youth Philharmonic could just skate by on this distinction alone. But it doesn't. Throughout its 90-year history, the three-time ASCAP winner for Adventurous Music Programming has continued to prepare young people to pursue a wide variety of professional careers—some have even gone on to perform with institutions such as the New York Philharmonic, the Boston Symphony, and the Oregon Symphony.
