Mission Chamber Orchestra Three Olympians

Peter Boyer, orchestrator of film scores for all the major movie studios, used a variety of string techniques in creating three “mini portraits” of Greek gods for Three Olympians.

Beethoven’s Piano Concerto no. 2 was written before his Piano Concerto no. 1 and is his most “Mozartean” concerto – the bouncy last movement has a main theme that sounds Hungarian.

French composer Camille Saint-Saens (b. 1835) made 179 trips to 27 countries, even visiting San Francisco’s 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition where his “Hail! California” for wind band premiered.
