Get ready for the fabulous melodies and dance rhythms of Mexican composer Arturo Márquez’ Fandango violin concerto, completed in 2021 and performed by the incomparable Anne Akiko Meyers. Also on this season-opening program is the US Premiere of Marcos Fernández' homage to Leonard Bernstein, America.
"Meyers’ playing is what it always has been: a national treasure. She is a musical wizard, with astonishing access to every kind of expressive color."
– San Diego Union-Tribune
Rossen Milanov hosts a pre-concert talk on Sunday, September 11 at 3pm; free to all Sunday ticket holders.
