Die-Sir-E, composed by FSO’s own Enrique Diemecke, is a fun and interactive piece utilizing every orchestra instrument, the conductor and even the audience! This piece was commissioned by Radio France Festival for the World Cup Final Concert in 1998.

Korngold’s Violin Concerto in D Major was the composer’s first classical work after retiring from film scoring, which supported him and his family after fleeing the Nazisduring World War II. Korngold is considered the founder of the “Hollywood Sound” often associated with classic film scores.

Brahms’ Symphony No. 4 in E Minor is the last symphony he ever wrote. The various string features throughout the piece showcase the cello section, full strings and aunique trombone choir in the final movement. The piece was controversial at its time of composition (1884), where classical music was on the precipice of 20th century experimentation – Brahms’ powerful Symphony No. 4 is a modern spin on a classicform, and feels familiar and exhilarating all at once.
