South Carolina Philharmonic: Oktoberfest

joseph-rackers-300The concert featured on this Carolina Live program was titled Oktoberfest, but it's filled with music that's wonderful any month of the year. You'll hear Weber's Overture to Der Frieschutz, the Schicksalslied (Song of Destiny) by Brahms, Beethoven's "warm-up" to the 9th Symphony, his stirring Choral Fantasy, plus Mendelssohn's powerful Symphony No. 5 in d-minor. It's a full and appetizing menu of musical delights, just right for whenever you may hear it.
