Discover Saint-Saëns’ “Organ” Symphony, an aural journey through the Finale of French composer Camille Saint-Saëns’ tour de force Symphony No. 3, had its television premiere on Saturday, April 22, 2023 at 11:00am, on The WNET Group’s ALL ARTS.
The one-hour program, hosted by The Discovery Orchestra Founder and Artistic Director George Marriner Maull, will also be distributed nationally by American Public Television (APT) on May 1 for broadcast on U.S. public television stations (check local listings).
The interactive special features the 91-piece symphony orchestra and Plainfield, New Jersey-based organist Mark Miller. Peter Winograd of West Nyack, New York, serves as concertmaster. Viewers will be able to gain a better understanding of the “Organ” Symphony Finale by engaging with Maestro Maull’s insights and questions on aspects such as tempo, instrumentation and other musical elements, in order to learn how to “listen better” — which is the guiding mission of the orchestra.
