Monterey Symphony — Soundwaves II

  • Hector Berlioz: Overture, Le Corsaire, Op 21 (with YMMC Honors Orchestra)
  • Carl Nielsen: Flute Concerto, FS 119, Carol Wincene, flute
  • Pyotr Ilyich 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 in Hector Berlioz’ Overture, Le corsairs, Op. 21, which like the Tchaikovsky, was also composed during a period of  great despair.
