Beethoven & Bolero
September 22 - 24, 2022It begins softly. A single snare drum. Then, a flute. Gradually, each instrument of Pacific Symphony joins in, one after the other, until Ravel’s Boléro reaches one of the greatest climaxes in all of music. Also, Orli Shaham, Dennis Kim and Warren Hagerty perform Beethoven’s too-rarely encountered tour-de-force, the Triple Concerto. Carl St.Clair begins the season with Wagner’s stormy overture to The Flying Dutchman, and Re(new)al, a new work by the brilliant young composer, Viet Cuong.
November 17 - 19, 2022Majestic in its scope. Dazzling in its sound. There is nothing to match the experience of hearing The Planets live in concert. Experience the ultimate trip through the galaxy as Pacific Symphony performs Gustav Holst’s sonic celestial showpiece. Acclaimed violinist Stefan Jackiw performs the spirited Scottish Fantasy of Max Bruch. “His astonishing gifts, and musicality and technical finesse place him at the top of his peers,” raves The Seattle Times. These concerts begin with the lyrical PIVOT from one of today’s leading English composers, Anna Clyne.
January 12 - 14, 2023It's Mahler's last completed symphony. To many—his greatest. Carl St.Clair conducts the sublime Ninth Symphony of Gustav Mahler. Poignant and profound, the Ninth is Mahler’s moving testament of the artist and his own mortality. A powerfully affecting musical journey that one can't experience on their own.
Tchaikovsky & Strauss
February 23 - 25, 2023Tchaikovsky poured his soul into symphonies that would express his anguish and passions as no music had ever dared to. Carl St.Clair conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony. The evening is complemented with the music of Richard Strauss and his graceful Serenade for Winds. Concertmaster Dennis Kim presents the world premiere of the new Violin Concerto of dynamic American composer, John Wineglass. With multiple Emmy nominations for his music for television, Wineglass is a vital presence in the symphonic world. Be there for the first performance of his captivating new work.
April 20 - 25, 2023A lecherous Duke, who lives to take his pleasure. His twisted court jester, who lives to take his revenge. Carl St.Clair conducts this season’s semi-staged opera production: Verdi’s Rigoletto, the composer’s masterpiece of duplicity and deception. A full theatrical experience in the splendor of the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall.
Grieg Piano Concerto
June 01 - 03, 2023This is one of the most beloved, most passionate Piano Concertos in the entire repertoire. The brilliant Louis Lortie, noted by The New York Times for his “splendid technique and thoughtful soul,” plays Greig’s immortal concerto. Teddy Abrams, at the forefront of America’s new generation of conductors leads Stravinsky’s colorful Petrushka, and an overture of his own.
