Einleitung, oder Sonnenaufgang (Introduction, or Sunrise) <strong>Composer:</strong> Richard Strauss <strong>Music:</strong> Blue Danube <strong>Composer:</strong> Johann Strauss II
Mars evolves from a place that evokes fear to one that evokes wonder, and one that may become an outpost in space as humans become an interplanetary species. <strong>Music:</strong> The Planets, Op. 32:1. Mars, the Bringer of War <strong>Composer:</strong> Gustav Holst
See what the Universe would look like if you had infrared vision, radio vision, even X-ray and gamma ray vision. <strong>Music:</strong> In the Hall of the Mountain King <strong>Composer:</strong> Edvard Grieg
Portraits of the Night
Humans have portrayed the night sky for thousands of years, blending art and reality along the way. <strong>Music:</strong> Piano Concerto No. 21 in C major, K. 467: II. Andante <strong>Composer:</strong> Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Clearer From Afar
The Apollo astronauts were on a mission to explore the Moon, but it was looking back on our home planet that left the greatest impression. <strong>Music:</strong> Gianni Schicchi: O mio babbino caro <strong>Composer:</strong> Giacomo Puccini
As the engines of a rocket ignite, three brave astronauts prepare to make their new home orbiting high above our Earth. The moon passes through our planet’s shadow to become endowed with a mystifying red glow. Icy rocks form the appearance of rings as they surround Saturn like satellites. Far from our civilization, the Curiosity rover traverses the surface of Mars. Space Suite returns with a new series of 10 short films that explore the infinite wonders of our universe, and our interactions with the cosmos. Accompanying the stories are classical pieces that include Tchaikovsky’s “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy”; Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 21 in C Major; and Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony Mvt One.
