Pacific Symphony Orchestra to Perform TCHAIKOVSKY SPECTACULAR, 9/5Pacific Symphony Orchestra to Perform TCHAIKOVSKY SPECTACULAR, 9/5
by BWW News Desk - Aug 17, 2015

Orange County, Calif.—Aug. 17, 2015—Romantic Russian masterpieces give way to a thrilling orchestral battle featuring fireworks, cannons and brassy fanfare for Pacific Symphony's “Tchaikovsky Spectacular,” featuring the composer's “1812” Overture. The program's centerpiece is Rachmaninoff's virtuosic showpiece—the achingly beautiful, grand and lyrical Piano Concerto No. 2, performed by Olga Kern. Born in Russia to a family of musicians with direct links to both Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff, the captivating pianist was the first woman in 30 years to win the Gold Medal at the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition (2001). Led by Music Director Carl St.Clair, the concert opens with enchanting ballet music including excerpts from Tchaikovsky's “The Sleeping Beauty” and Stravinsky's shimmering Suite from “The Firebird.” Summer Festival 2015 comes to a dramatic close with an electrifying display of fireworks and 16 cannon shots in Tchaikovsky's victorious “1812” Overture, featuring the Huntington Beach Concert Band, which also provides pre-concert entertainment.

BWW Reviews: American Ballet Theatre's SLEEPING BEAUTYBWW Reviews: American Ballet Theatre's SLEEPING BEAUTY
by Barnett Serchuk - Jun 17, 2015

Remember history class in high school? The teacher presented a lecture and told us how exciting a certain historical period had been, going on to incessantly bore us because we had no recourse other than to take indecipherable notes we couldn't understand later, finally coming to the conclusion that history was, and always would be, a painstaking bore, better consigned to the college professors we were bound to meet sooner or later on our educational journey to adulthood and, hopefully, a job. That's very much what I thought about the American Ballet Theater's new production of Alexei Ratmansky's 'Sleeping Beauty.' I hate to sound churlish, but so much ink, not to mention so many dollars, have been lavished on this production, that, beyond some more extra performances and, probably, a showing on Great Performances, it will disappear within two years. At least it will be in the archives for future generations to watch. (more...)
