La Jolla Symphony & Chorus: Looking to the Future
Looking to the Future May 4 @ 7:30pm – May 5 @ 2:00pm, 2019 Steven Schick, conductor Julie Wolfe Fuel (with film by Bill Morrison) Camille Saint-Saëns Piano Concerto No. 2 Jean Sibelius Symphony No. 5 Soloist: Anne Liu, piano, 2017 Young Artists Winner (pictured) Steven Schick leads a sharply varied program. Pulitzer Prize-winner Julia Wolfe has taken particular pleasure in writing music with film, and we hear her Fuel, with a film by Bill Morrison. Young Artist Winner Anne Liu performs Saint-Saens’ witty Second Piano Concerto, which has been described as “beginning with Bach and ending with Offenbach.” The concert concludes with Sibelius’ mighty Fifth Symphony, which drives to its triumphant conclusion on six shattering chords for full orchestra.
