The Classical Symphony Orchestra

  • Brahms—Academic Festival Overture, Op. 80: Written to thank the University of Breslau for Brahm’s honorary doctorate, this work pays homage to students’ extra-curricular mischief. The composer himself described it as a “very boisterous potpourri of student drinking songs a la [light opera composer] Suppé.”
  • Handel—Water Music Suite: This is music with a waterfront view—at least, that’s how it was designed to be experienced. King George I commissioned Handel for a concert for the River Thames, and legend has it the composer drafted it to get back on the king’s good side, after irking His Highness by moving to London during Queen Anne’s reign. No doubt the suite’s shimmering strings, graceful woodwinds, and cheerfully bubbling horns went a long ways to soothe the slight.
  • Tchaikovsky—Symphony No. 5 in E minor, Op. 64: Though the composer announced, “I have come to the conclusion that it is a failure,” after hearing his Fifth for the second time, much of the world would disagree. The four-movement symphony, which champions the idea of ultimate victory through strife, became exceedingly popular during WWII, has since appeared in ballets and films, and is even thought to have inspired John Denver’s “Annie’s Song.”
