Concert Grand – Concert I
Dvořák: Symphony No. 9, "From the New World," Op. 95
Tchaikowsky-Piano Concerto No. 1, Op. 23
The Monterey Symphony will open the 72nd season – Concert Grand – with two preeminent showpieces: Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9, “From the New World;” and Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1. Returning to play with Max Bragado-Darman and the Monterey Symphony again this season, fan-favorite Orion Weiss will amaze audiences with his virtuosic skills performing Tchaikovsky’s first piano concerto, composed for the historically acclaimed Nikolai Rubinstein. Popularly known as the “New World Symphony,” Symphony No. 9 by Antonín Dvořák was composed in America while he taught at the National Conservatory in New York City, and has remained an American classic since it was written in 1893. Don’t miss this chance to hear these two landmark musical works live at the Monterey Symphony season opener!
