The Deal

The Program

  • Berlioz—Roman Carnival Overture: A nine-minute rush of brightness and color explodes out of the string section, setting a seemingly impossible pace that the orchestra manages to carry to the very end. But before that moment, listen for a solo from the English horn—an instrument that rarely stands alone in the spotlight.
  • Lalo—Symphonie Espagnole: Édouard Lalo was born in northern France, but his career didn’t come into its own until he began writing in the Spanish style—a change inspired by violin virtuoso Pablo de Sarasate. In Symphonie Espagnole, a solo violin and flourishes of Spanish duplet and triplet melodies underline the effect this influence had upon him.
  • Mussorgsky/Ravel—Pictures at an Exhibition: Meant to evoke a journey through an art museum filled with pieces bold and disturbing, Mussorgsky’s iconic piano composition was reinvented when Ravel transcribed it for the orchestra. Throughout the 10 movements, listeners may feel the same ecstasy that Mussorgsky did when composing it: “Ideas, melodies, come to me of their own accord. Like roast pigeons in the story, I gorge and gorge and over-eat myself. I can hardly manage to put it all down on paper fast enough.”

Long Beach Symphony

A community institution for over 80 years, the Long Beach Symphony has entertained generations of audiences. The Symphony produces six full symphonic classical concerts throughout the year at the Long Beach Perform­ing Arts Center Terrace Theater and five more eclectic POPS! concert events in the Long Beach Arena, entertaining more than 32,000 residents throughout the season. Outside of their concert events, the Symphony also provides over 24,000 local school children with access to music at their schools, libraries, and community centers, as well as ensembles and concert field trips for every LBUSD 2nd-5th grader in the public school sys­tem. Because music should be above all things accessible, Long Beach Symphony also offers free concerts at smaller venues and fun instrument petting zoos in spaces all over the City of Long Beach, like Cesar Chavez Park, Rainbow Harbor Lagoon, City Parking Ga­rage, and Homeland Cultural Center.
