Monterey Symphony – Concert 2

November 18 @ 3:00 pm

BERLIOZ – Overture, Le corsaire, Op. 21

NIELSEN – Flute Concerto, FS 119
Carol Wincenc, flute

TCHAIKOVSKY – Symphony No. 4, Op. 36

Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4, Op. 36 – often referred to as the “Fate” symphony because of the dark undertones – headlines the second concert of the season. Written in the shadow of Beethoven’s masterful Symphony No. 5, Tchaikovsky echoes the great master’s melancholy in this hallmark orchestral work.

Carol Wincenc, professor of flute at Juilliard, joins the orchestra for Carl Nielsen’s Flute Concerto, composed in 1926 for the legendary flautist M. Holger-Gilbert Jespersen. This concert will also feature members of the Youth Music Monterey County Honors Orchestra playing side-by-side on Hector Berlioz’s Overture, Le corsaire, Op. 21, which, like the Tchaikovsky symphony, was also composed during a period of great despair.

Join us one hour prior to every performance for our pre-concert lectures presented by musicologist Dr. Todd Samra
