Long Beach Symphony Presents "Beethoven and Dvořák"

Saturday, March 4, 2017 -
8:00pm to 10:00pm

Your evening will begin with Beethoven’s Leonore Overture No. 3. – one of four overtures the composer wrote for his only opera. Following, the Symphony’s incredible principal oboist, Rong-Huey Liu, takes center stage in Lebrun’s Oboe Concerto #2 in G Minor. Lebrun was the leading oboe player of the 1770s and ’80s, and when he died at the young age of 38, he had traveled Europe as a soloist and composed at least 18 concertos for his instrument. The very fast, lively first movement moves into a charming, lyrical, Mozartian second movement that all will enjoy. Following intermission, the Symphony will present Dvořák’s Symphony #8 in G Major (1889) that features a distinctive “bird-call” flute motif in the 1st movement. Optimistic and cheerful, the melodies of this work have an unmistakably Czech flavor perfect for this early spring performance.
