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

RACHMANINOFF – The Bells

TCHAIKOVSKY – Scenes from Eugene Onegin

Inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s poem of the same name, Rachmaninoff’s The Bells is one of the composer’s favourite compositions and his secular choral masterpiece. The four movements depict different stages of human life – carefree youth, happy adolescence and love, maturity and epilogue. Stanislav Kochanovsky and a cast of leading Russian singers also perform highlights from Eugene Onegin, a lyric opera by Tchaikovsky inspired by Pushkin’s novel, in which a selfish hero lives to regret his rejection of a young woman’s love.
