San Diego Symphony: Discovery Night
Rafael Payare, Conductor
MOZART: Overture to Don Giovanni
R. STRAUSS: Don Juan
MUSSORGSKY/Ravel: Pictures from an Exhibition
Don’t miss Rafael Payare’s momentous inaugural concert as San Diego Symphony’s Music Director Designate.
As part of our January “Hearing the Future” festival looking at youthful creation, this program features Don
Juan, composed by a 24-year-old Richard Strauss, and Modest Mussorgsky’s Pictures from an
Exhibition (written in that composer’s 35th year) in its well-known orchestration by Maurice Ravel. The
concert opens with the dramatic overture to Mozart’s Don Giovanni, which he debuted at age 31.
