    BWW Reviews: No Gods but Plenty of Masters in DIE MEISTERSINGER at the MetBWW Reviews: No Gods but Plenty of Masters in DIE MEISTERSINGER at the Met
    by Richard Sasanow - Dec 12, 2014

    Savor two giant works of the repertoire for Pacific Symphony's first concert in December, beginning with Beethoven's masterful and rhythmic Seventh Symphony, which the composer himself called “one of my best works.” Then, the program turns to perhaps the world's most lyrical, popular and critically admired piano concerto—Rachmaninoff's Second—performed by keyboard wonder and longtime Symphony friend, Alain Lefèvre. The concert, led by Music Director Carl St.Clair, opens with a world premiere by the Symphony's Composer-in-Residence Narong Prangcharoen, who offers a musical tribute to the maestro with his piece, “Illuminating Journey,” which honors St.Clair's 25th anniversary with the orchestra, as well as his commitment to new music.
