Chicago Symphony Orchestra
We are honored to welcome Frank Villella, Director of the Rosenthal Archives of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra to the show! This CSO-themed episode was written by Frank and has a bounty of great classical music and CSO trivia. Frank co-hosts with David to bring you 20 great questions. For instance:
How many movements are in Holst’s The Planets?
The Chicago Symphony Orchestra has made commercial recordings for several labels, including RCA. The iconic image used by RCA for many years showed a dog listening to a gramophone. What breed of dog was it, and for bonus points, what was the name of the dog?
During the current season, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra is performing all of Ludwig van Beethoven’s symphonies. He named his Third Symphony the “Eroica” or “Heroic,” but to whom was the work originally dedicated?
Find out the answers to these questions and more in this magically musical episode of Quiz Quiz Bang Bang!
