The Monterey Symphony opens the third program of the season with one of Arturo Toscanini’s favorite works: the Coriolan Overture by Ludwig van Beethoven. The tragic story of Gaius Marcius Coriolanus – who unsuccessfully invaded Rome – was dramatized by both William Shakespeare and Viennese poet and author Heinrich Joseph von Collin.
Acclaimed violinist Sergej Krylov will dazzle our audiences with his exhilarating performance of the Violin Concerto in D Minor by Jean Sibelius, the only concerto composed by the brilliant Finnish composer. Rounding out this program will be the legendary Symphony No. 3 in F Major by Johannes Brahms, an audience favorite that has thrilled listeners since it premiered in 1883. Do not miss this opportunity to hear these monuments of musical perfection!
