The Las Vegas Philharmonic has altered the music selections for their October 14 performance at The Smith Center in light of the city’s October 1 tragedy.
The evening’s musical selections now include Barber’s Adagio for Strings, Beethoven’s Coriolan Overture, Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto and will conclude with Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5. The Adagio for Strings has been performed on many public occasions around the world, especially during times of mourning. Beethoven’s Fifth, and the four-note opening in particular, are known world-wide, appearing often in music, film and television. Since the Second World War, the piece has sometimes been referred to as the “Victory Symphony” and during WWII the BBC prefaced its broadcasts to Europe with those four notes.
