Vivaldi – Gloria in D major, RV 589
2016 –2017 OSSCS Composer Contest winning composition
Saint-Saëns – Symphony No. 3 in C minor (“Organ”), Op. 78

Vivaldi’s joyful Gloria — today his best-loved choral work — languished in oblivion for two centuries, until a 1939 performance reintroduced it to the modern world. Of his “Organ” Symphony, Saint-Saëns declared: “I gave everything to it I was able to give. What I have here accomplished, I will never achieve again.” Tom Service calls it “a magnificent and fantastical symphonic machine that’s an apotheosis of the orchestral technology of the late 19th century … the definitive ‘steampunk’ symphony.”
