On A Lighter Note - VSO Encore

Episode Summary

In this special series, the VSO looks back on past performances through special interviews and never-before-released recordings. What better day to explore humor and wit in classical music than April Fools. To so many, classical music is often thought of as very serious, but the truth is many famous composers were known to put humor into their work. In our first Encore episode we focus on the lighter notes and together we explore work by Haydn and Strauss performed by the VSO.
