From the New World (October 29)
- Dvořák—Symphony No. 9 in E minor: One of the most enduring examples of a Romantic symphony, this piece is often called the New World Symphony because Dvořák took inspiration from his time as the director of the National Conservatory of Music of America. While there, he became familiar with everything from Native-American rhythms to African-American spirituals and traditional Scottish music. He then weaved this cultural blend into a single composition, creating a sonic representation of the country itself.
- Rodgers—Slaughter on Tenth Avenue
- Schuller—Journey Into Jazz
- Bauer—Sun Splendor
- Collins—The Cowboy’s Breakdown
Dark, Tragic and Passionate (January 28)
- Mozart—Piano Concerto No. 24: After an enigmatic opening that alternates between flighty woodwind runs and bold bursts of strings, a solitary piano passionately explores delicate themes.
- Nielsen—Sinfonia Semplice
- Schubert—Overture, Rosamunde
- Liadov—The Enchanted Lake
Something Might Be Made of That Tune (April 1)
- Elgar—Enigma Variations: Each of 14 variations is dedicated to one of Elgar’s dearest friends, but the titular enigma is an unplayed “theme” that Elgar often hinted at but never revealed.
- Barraine—Symphony No. 2
- Korngold—Violin Concerto
- Delius—On Hearing the First Cuckoo in Spring
The Twentieth Century’s Ninth Symphony (June 3)
- Stravinsky—The Rite of Spring: This avant-garde masterpiece opens with a calm woodwind meditation before it builds to a thrashing fever pitch of dissonance and chromatic coloration. Its sharp rejection of the Romantic tradition caused riots when it premiered in Paris in 1913. Similarly controversial was its content: during a prehistoric ritual, a maiden dances herself to death as a form of religious sacrifice.
- Rachmaninoff—Symphony No. 3 in A Minor
