Beethoven & Bernstein

4:00 pm Sunday, September 23, 2018
California Symphony
Lesher Center for the Arts Walnut Creek, California, United States

Donato Cabrera, conductor; Charlie Albright, piano


  • American treasure Leonard Bernstein made his conducting debut in a live radio broadcast with the New York Philharmonic at Carnegie Hall at age 25, with just a few hours notice and zero rehearsal time after the guest conductor became ill. This concert celebrates 100 years of his legacy.
  • Featuring themes like Somewhere and Maria, West Side Story is one of Bernstein’s best loved and most enduring works, which helped to bridge the gap between classical and popular music.
  • Charlie Albright returns after his 2016 debut with the California Symphony, when he brought the house down with Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue and his Great Balls of Fire encore.
