Long Beach Symphony Opening Night - Scheherazade

Concerts & Music
With its soaring, majestic brass, Aaron Copland’s beloved 3-minute Fanfare for the Common Man will open Long Beach Symphony’s 2014-2015 80th Anniversary Classical Series masterfully led by Grammy and Tony Award-winning guest conductor John DeMain, Madison Symphony’s Music Director and former Music Director of Orange County’s Opera Pacific. The concert will showcase Edvard Grieg’s Piano Concerto in A Minor â€" his only concerto, interpreted by guest piano soloist, Christopher Taylor with a thunderous descending opening passage and rhythmic, dance-like finale. In the second half, audiences will be beguiled by Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade with its hauntingly beautiful violin passage that portrays the woman who convinced the Sultan to spare her life by telling him one thousand and one stories of Arabian Nights.
