Director of String studies, Prof. Moni Simeonov, returns to the stage with two very different concertos. The Chausson and Ravel are both character pieces: one is more contemplative, the other full of vigor and virtuosity. This descriptive program opens with Debussy’s most famous piece, Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun, and ends with Rachmaninoff’s beautiful second symphony, which highlights the richness and warmth of the orchestra.
Program includes BCCM opera majors performing scenes from Die Zauberflöte, Le Nozze di Figaro, Don Giovanni, and Trouble in Tahiti.
Featuring outstanding CSULB pianists in solo performances of mostly classics by the great composers from eighteenth to the twentieth centuries.
