- El río de las siete estrellas is one of the best-known works by top Venezuelan composer Evencio Castellanos.
- One of the world’s premier harpists, Yolanda Kondonassis performs Ginastera’s Harp Concerto, a melodic work well scored so that the harp is never overwhelmed by the orchestra.
- Brahms’ Symphony No. 1, a masterpiece that is sometimes called “Beethoven’s 10th,” is dramatic, lyrical and triumphant.
