    Guest conductor Oleg Caetani hails from Italy and is making his debut with the Monterey Symphony. The son of famed conductor and composer, Igor Markevitch, Caetani completed his formal training at the Moscow Conservatory and graduated from the Saint Petersburg Conservatory. He won the RAI Competition and third prize at the Karajan Competition in Berlin.

    Tchaikovsky's 3rd Symphony, "Polish," opens the program. This symphony is unique in that it is his only Symphony both in a major key, and containing five movements. The piece, sans first movement, was used by choreographer George Balanchine for Diamonds, the third and final part of his ballet Jewels. Various instruments are showcased in this iconic work, including a lovely flute solo in the third movement.

    The second half of the program contains Shostakovich's 15th Symphony, written in 1971 and premiered in Moscow, which is full of references to other composer's works. Shostakovich tips his hat to Rossini and Glinka, as well as featuring the "Fate" motif from Richard Wagner's Ring Cycle.

    Join us one hour prior to every performance for our pre-concert lectures in the Hall of Sunset Center.
