Gustav Mahler http://iowapublicradio.org en Mighty Wurlitzer Returns to CR in Mahler, Walton http://iowapublicradio.org/post/mighty-wurlitzer-returns-cr-mahler-walton <p>The 2008 Cedar Rapids flood badly damaged the Wurlitzer organ at the Paramount Theatre, but it is now fully restored, and this March was unveiled in concert. For its victorious return, Orchestra Iowa chose two masterpieces that need a huge organ: Walton’s splendid <em>Te Deum</em> and Mahler’s “Resurrection” symphony. With two choruses, two soloists and full orchestra, this colossal performance brought together the largest ensemble ever to appear at the Paramount. Jacqueline Halbloom produced and hosts IPR's broadcast as part of our Symphonies of Iowa series.</p> Sun, 20 Apr 2014 16:43:00 +0000 Barney Sherman 39411 at http://iowapublicradio.org Mighty Wurlitzer Returns to CR in Mahler, Walton Mahler "Symphony of a Thousand" Live http://iowapublicradio.org/post/mahler-symphony-thousand-live <p>Join us Wednesday at 7PM to hear what the <em>Telegraph </em>called "a performance of cosmic impact" by the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra led by Mariss Jansons.
