Akron Symphony Orchestra: Organ Symphony
Saint-Saëns’ Organ Symphony delivers aural thrills in unique ways. Part spiritual journey, part sonic theater, the ASO’s performance features Robert Mollard on the recently acquired Rodgers digital organ, which can reproduce sounds from any instrument in the world. Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson’s works bring together the traditions of jazz, pop, film, and classical music. His tone poem, Worship, is an orchestral fantasy on the Old 100th, familiar from hymnals of many faiths. Brilliant, sumptuous, and transcendent, Ottorino Respighi’s orchestrations remain unsurpassed. Church Windows takes its title from well-known Italian stained-glass windows, but its sound is signature Respighi.
