Musical Enculturation

In an effort to enculturate ourselves, Ed and I have begun going to a few local orchestra performances. Tonight's performance of the Temple Square Orchestra was one that I had seen advertised a few weeks ago, made even more appealing by being free. The concert lasted about two hours, and included Wagner's "Overture from Tannhauser," DiLorenzo's "A Little Russian Circus" (the piece I liked the most tonight), Mahler's "Adagietto from Symphony No. 5," and Franck's "Symphony in D Minor." I managed to record all but the very last few seconds of the Wagner piece, as well as Mahler's "Adagietto" in its entirety.

Listen!
