New Music Director Eckart Preu leads the Long Beach Symphony Orchestra in a concert of intriguing French programmatic music. You'll hear Danse macabre, Saint-Saëns' musical portrayal of an ancient legend in which Death appears at midnight every year, calling forth the dead from their graves to dance for him while he plays his fiddle. Then, Debussy's Prelude to The Afternoon of a Faun depicts a forest faun playing his pan-pipes to (unsuccessfully) woo passing nymphs and naiads. Then it's on to Dukas' The Sorcerer's Apprentice, an energetic work made popular in the Walt Disney film Fantasia. The evening culminates with Berlioz's epic Symphonie fantastique, a self-portrait of the composer's own obsession for a beautiful woman, driving him to the sinister side of his imagination. After the work's second premiere, the object of Berlioz's affection realized that the work was about her and agreed to marry him. Don't miss this evening of musical fantasy at the Long Beach Performing Arts Center.
