Marin Symphony Masterworks I: Bold Beginnings

Marin Symphony Masterworks I: Bold Beginnings

Presented by Marin Symphony at Marin Veterans' Memorial Auditorium

In celebration of our season opener, we’re literally “kicking things off” with John Adams’ joyful exuberant piece, Short Ride in a Fast Machine, brilliantly scored for a large orchestra. This kinetic gem evokes the excitement-cum-terror of a late-night thrill ride in a sports car.

Beethoven’s masterful Emperor Concerto is proof of the tenderness and beauty that runs like a thread through this great man’s music. Joining the orchestra will guest piano favorite, Jon Nakamatsu, a true aristocrat of the keyboard, whose playing combines elegance, clarity, and electrifying power. The evening concludes with Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances. Today many regard it as his finest music, perhaps even comprehensive enough to be his Fourth Symphony. Please join us for this incredible season-opener.
