Monterey Symphony – Concert 3

Johannes Brahms – Academic Festival Overture, Op. 80
Camille Saint-Saëns – Piano Concerto No. 5, Op. 103
Robert Schumann – Symphony No. 2, Op. 61

JOHANNES BRAHMS is a cherished composer among local audiences, who will be charmed with his warm and lyrical Academic Festival Overture, Op. 80, a musical thank-you note to the University of Breslau, who bestowed an honorary doctorate upon him in 1880. The Monterey Symphony’s third concert also features Symphony No. 2 by Robert Schumann, a close friend to Brahms.

Renowned pianist Josu de Solaun will dazzle with his exhilarating performance of Piano Concerto No. 5 by Camille Saint-Saëns. Josu performed Mussorgky’s Pictures at an Exhibition as a solo piano recital previously for the Monterey Symphony, and the 2014 First Prize Enescu Piano Competition winner is back to astonish our audiences again. Do not miss this opportunity!
