Played In Oregon

This weekend’s installment of Played in Oregon features the Corvallis-OSU Symphony Orchestra in Richard Strauss’ Symphonia Domestica,  a work so successful in its New York premiere that an entire sales floor of Wannamaker’s Department Store was cleared to make room for two more performances that drew 6000 people each. That still didn’t stop the American and German press from criticizing the work as a commercialization of music and family life, however. Judge for yourself when host Brandi Parisi reprises this recent area concert at 1 p.m. on July 13.
