San Diego Symphony Presents Fascinating Rhythm

Rafael Payare, conductor
Steven Schick, percussion

Berlioz: Roman Carnival
Roberto Sierra: Con madera, metal y cuero (Percussion Concerto)
Prokofiev: Symphony No. 5

Our “It’s About Time” percussion festival opens with a program of works suffused with orchestral color and rhythm. Hector Berlioz’s boisterous Roman Carnival contains the Italian saltarello dance at its core. Serge Prokofiev’s Symphony No. 5 bristles with energy, often driven by inexorable “tick-tocks” coming from the percussion section. Guest soloist and festival curator Steven Schick will be at the center of a virtual menagerie of wood, metal and skin in Roberto Sierra’s Percussion Concerto.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending.
