Jacques Offenbach: Overture to Orpheus in the Underworld
Christopher Theofanidis: Drum Circles
Robert Fuchs: Symphony No. 2

Description

A Greek classic meets the cancan in Jacques Offenbach’s sassy Overture to Orpheus in the Underworld. Also, Carlos Kalmar conducts the Grant Park Orchestra and the dynamic Percussion Collective in a captivating new work by eclectic American composer Christopher Theofanidis. And, the Orchestra rediscovers a symphonic rarity by one of Johannes Brahms’ favorite composers: Robert Fuchs.
