Great composers are the virtue for the second concert of the season, with Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6 and Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 3, the most revered of the five he composed. Prokofiev generously balanced the orchestra with the piano in this highly virtuosic concerto. The Monterey Symphony will welcome talented pianist David Jae-Weon Huh, making his first appearance with the orchestra. Ludwig van Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6, Op. 68, subtitled the ‘Pastoral,’ was the first programmatic symphonic work, changing the course of symphonic writing for the remainder of the Romantic Era. It premiered the same night as his famous Symphony No. 5 in one of the most influential concerts in all of history, so do not miss your opportunity to hear it performed live by the Monterey Symphony & members of the Honors Orchestra of Youth Music Monterey County this November!
