Fancy Free, Three Dance Variations; Serenade

8:00 pm Friday, May 4, 2018
San Diego Symphony
Copley Symphony Hall San Diego, California, United States

Fabien Gabel, conductor; Simone Lamsma, violin

Our month-long salute to Leonard Bernstein’s Centennial kicks off with one of Bernstein’s great early successes, his music to the ballet Fancy Free. One of the leading young violinists in the world, Simone Lamsma, performs Bernstein’s unusually scored Serenade, a work inspired by Plato’s famous Symposium on the subject of love. The concert closes with a couple of richly textured suites from the lively opera/operetta worlds of Richard Strauss and Jacques Offenbach.
