rediscovering a once-forgotten gem
Georges Bizet's Symphony in C sat on a shelf at the Paris Conservatory for 80 years before it was discovered. Bizet wrote it while he was a student there. The world didn't find out about it until long after his death. We'll hear a performance of this teen-aged masterpiece by the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra in New York City.
