From simple beauty to dazzling grandeur, Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 5, "Emperor" requires extreme virtuosity from its soloist, making it an ideal centerpiece for Pacific Symphony's upcoming concert, "Beethoven's 'Emperor.'" Pianist Barry Douglas, gold medal winner at the 1986 Tchaikovsky International Piano Competition, travels from Ireland to tackle this famous concerto under the direction of Grammy-winning guest conductor John Nelson. Nelson, a Costa Rican native, also leads the orchestra in a performance of Schumann's alternately broody and ebullient Symphony No. 2 in C Major, which was premiered in October 1846 under the direction of another well-known composer, Felix Mendelssohn. The Symphony opens the concert with Carl Maria von Weber's imaginative Overture to "Oberon," an opera of magic and elves.

Throughout the world, a multitude of cultures each have legends that tell of hidden relics and an ultimate treasure that will grant unlimited wealth and power. In European cultures, the legend of the Holy Grail and the spear of destiny are constantly being used in literature, and in Asian Cultures the Legend of the Japanese Imperial sword Kusanagi and the Hebrew Ark of the Covenant are also receiving the same treatment. These legends though are usually just rumors spread around to create publicity or attract tourists. What would one do if one found out that a legend is true, and that it may lead to the location of the ultimate treasure promising riches and power beyond all comprehension? In 'The Last Will,' author Hermione Kushina has written an exciting brain-teaser of a story filled with mystery, action, suspense and spirituality.
