Don’t miss Rafael Payare’s momentous inaugural concert as San Diego Symphony’s Music Director Designate. As part of our January “Hearing the Future” festival looking at youthful creation, this program features Don Juan, composed by a 24-year-old Richard Strauss, and Modest Mussorgsky’s Pictures from an Exhibition (written in that composer’s 35th year) in its well-known orchestration by Maurice Ravel. The concert opens with the dramatic overture to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Don Giovanni, which he debuted at age 31. Just Announced! Cellist Alisa Weilerstein will join the concert, performing Tchaikovsky’s beloved Rococo Variations.
