Pieces by Hindemith and Brahms bookend the debut of 16-year-old cellist Austin Huntington, a winner of the Irving M. Klein International String Competition, lending the up-and-coming luminary support as he tackles the spotlight. Huntington takes the central role in Antonin Dvorak’s Cello Concerto in B Minor, op. 104, the full tones of his instrument cutting through flighty woodwind trills, following a mountain of violins to gallop through the octaves in bittersweet surrender. Johannes Brahms’s Symphony no. 1 follows, beginning with foreboding before giving way to lucid, light woodwinds, and periodic harmonic bursts from the ensemble. Yet, before both pieces, Paul Hindemith’s March from Symphonic Metamorphosis, as its name implies, explores the tonal intricacies of a trumpet waking to find itself transformed into a gigantic tuba.

Though Peninsula Symphony sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.

Music Director Mitchell Sardou Klein leads the ensemble with a steady baton, a sharp ear, and the stamina to carry on through the inevitable triple encore.
