Maestro Tito Muñoz returns for a powerful performance of Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 7, a patriotic hymn to his hometown of Leningrad and a rallying cry to the foes of fascism. This large orchestral work masterfully fuses Shostakovich’s emotional themes and motifs into “music written with the heart’s blood.” Valley favorite Concertmaster Steven Moeckel joins this program with a breathless performance of Samuel Barber’s rhapsodic Violin Concerto. To open, Maestro Muñoz once again features the music of young American composer Adam Schoenberg for the third straight season, this time presenting Schoenberg’s idyllic and lyrical Canto inspired by the birth of his son.
