Shaham Plays Mozart
Available for free, online viewing through Sept. 26.
The internationally celebrated pianist Orli Shaham, a “first-rate Mozartean” according to the Chicago Tribune, takes center stage in Mozart’s sunny Concerto No. 17, with the famous third movement theme inspired by the composer’s melodic pet starling. Eileen Jeanette, Pacific Symphony’s senior vice-president of artistic planning, opens the concert with an interview with Orli Shaham.
Available for free, online viewing through Oct. 10.
No single work transformed the sound of a symphony orchestra more than Berlioz’s revolutionary “Symphonie Fantastique” of 1830, with its massive orchestra, large percussion battery and powerful brass. Combining gracious ballroom dances with psychedelic depictions of a witches’ sabbath, the piece represents the composer’s obsessive love of a great Shakespearean actress. Eileen Jeanette, Pacific Symphony’s senior vice-president of artistic planning, opens the concert with an interview with Principal Bassoon Rose Corrigan.
Virtual Tchaikovsky Spectacular
Available for free, online viewing through Oct. 24.
No summer would be complete without Pacific Symphony performing Tchaikovsky’s thrilling “1812” overture, complete with live cannons and brilliant fireworks. Plus, enjoy Borodin's "Polovtsian Dances" and the "Procession of the Nobles" by Rimsky-Korsakov. Eileen Jeanette, Pacific Symphony’s senior vice-president of artistic planning, opens the concert with an interview with Principal Trumpet Barry Perkins.
