2016-2017 at San Diego Symphony

A preview of what's to come

Jahja Ling. My expectations for pacing have generally lined up with what maestro Ling has prepared but not on this night.

The San Diego Symphony revealed its upcoming season via a concert event on Thursday, April 21. The orchestra played selections from the 2016-17 season and a few things were the same and a few things weren’t.

The same things were pieces such as Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 4, Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 2, Beethoven Symphony No. 5, and so on and so forth. No complaints here. However, I am always surprised when pieces come back around. If feels like Tchaikovsky 4 was just the other day, but it will have been three years once it comes around again.

Bruckner

Symphony No. 8

Symphony No. 8

A few things that weren’t the same are a festival of American composers and Bruckner Symphony No. 8.

The American composers series is interesting and includes some composers that are off the beaten path. I was disappointed that there is no Amy Beach in the festival — seeing as how it’s her 150th year and all.

I was blown away at the prospect of Bruckner Symphony No. 8. I might end up going twice. Bruckner 8 is the end. It is the conclusion of the symphonic repertoire. Nothing exceeds it.

It’s a bold choice based on the Bruckner Symphony No. 4 of a few seasons ago, which felt like a bit of a stretch for the symphony at that point. The extent to which this orchestra has grown will be put to the ultimate test.

I admire maestro Ling for putting this leviathan on the schedule for his finale season as music director. It creates an air of anticipation in a season that will be full of conclusions.

I should say it creates an air of anticipation for me. I'm not sure how many others worship at the church of Bruckner. I think I'm going start proselytizing.

There will be two presentations of Beyond the Score in 2016-17. The Pictures at an Exhibition we saw this season was effective and it’s nice to see the exposure being expanded.

There’s a laundry list of fantastic soloists and conductors that can be found on the symphony website.
