Long Beach Symphony offers up an eclectic treat with pieces from Bach and Mahler, along with a nostalgic work by Samuel Barber at the Long Beach Performing Arts Center's Terrace Theater. The concert opens with majestic trumpets in J.S. Bach's sumptuous Overture to Orchestral Suite No. 4. Then acclaimed soprano Elissa Johnston will sing Barber's Knoxville: Summer of 1915, featuring text from James Agee's preamble to his Pulitzer Prize-winning book A Death in the Family. Mahler's beautiful Symphony No. 4 wraps the program, as the Austrian composer poignantly brings to life a child's innocent view of the world and heavens above through a breathtaking slow movement featuring the composer's signature soft passages. Johnston again joins the orchestra, led by guest conductor Gemma New, on Mahler's Fourth.
