Music by the Fresno Philharmonic Orchestra

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 22 min
Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA

From March 22, 1968, Arthur C. Berdahl conducts the Fresno Philharmonic in a performance of Carl Maria von Weber’s Overture to the opera “Der Freischütz.” Then from March 8, 1974, Berdahl conducts the orchestra in a performance of his own “Requiem for Grace,” and from the same concert Guy Taylor conducts a performance of Henry Cowell’s “Hymn and Fuguing Tune No.3.” Dr. Arthur C. Berdahl was a longtime professor of music at Fresno State College and the founder of symphonic music in Fresno, California. From 1932 to 1954, Berdahl conducted the Fresno State College Symphony Orchestra and taught music theory, composition, and other music courses to the most prominent musicians to come out of the Central Valley. One of his students, Leslie Bassett, won the 1966 Pulitzer Prize for music. This program features a composition by Berdahl and recordings by the Fresno Philharmonic Orchestra, the body which grew naturally out of the college orchestra in the mid 1950s.
